Mansukh Hiren, whose explosives-laden vehicle was found parked near the residence of RIL chairman Mukesh Ambani, was found dead in Thane on Friday.
According to police, Hiren died by suicide after jumping into Kalwa creek. A Scorpio with 2.5 kg of gelatin sticks, an explosive material, was found near ‘Antilia’, the multi-storey house of Ambani, on February 25 evening.
A letter found inside the SUV purportedly threatened Ambani and his family. Police had ruled out a terror angle during the probe conducted so far. While Hiren was identified as the owner of the car, the driver who had parked the car is yet to be identified.
Hiren was missing since Thursday and his family had registered a missing complaint with Naupada police station. Police teams are trying to track down the Innova car in which the driver was seen leaving. Police had earlier said the Scorpio had been stolen from Mulund area a week ago.
