After the Mumbai police received information that two people were inquiring about industrialist Mukesh Ambani’s property Antilia, security has been beefed up around it. The municipal police stated today that the CCTV footage around the building is also being investigated, months after a major security scare when an explosives-laden vehicle was discovered near the property.
“We received a call from a taxi driver who said two persons approached him and asked for the whereabouts of Mukesh Ambani’s Antilia property,” the police said today.
“Both of the males asking for the address had a huge suitcase in their hands, which the cab driver promptly reported to the Mumbai Police,” the police said.
According to the police, the driver’s statement is being recorded, and the issue is being monitored by a senior officer.
The increased security for the country’s wealthiest man follows a major security scare in February, when a Scorpio van loaded with explosives was discovered metres from his home.
The vehicle was discovered with 20 gelatin sticks and a letter written to Mukesh and Nita Ambani, the contents of which are still unknown. The car, which was later discovered to be stolen, was later linked to a guy who was slain.
The investigation into the incident is still underway, but it has found a plot including a police officer. Officer Sachin Waze was fired and arrested after being linked to the murder of Mansukh Hiren, the automobile owner.
According to sources, the National Investigation Agency, which took over the investigation, discovered that Sachin Waze had obtained the explosives and parked the SUV near Mukesh Ambani’s home.
Mr Ambani, the chairman of Reliance Industries, and his family have lived in one of the world’s most magnificent mansions, Antilia, a 27-story, 400,000-square-foot structure in south Mumbai’s upscale Cumballa Hill neighbourhood, since 2012.
