antilia-

MUMBAI: ‘Yeh sirf trailer hai’ (this is only a trailer)," read the letter which was found in the explosive gelatine sticks-laden SUV parked outside Mukesh Ambani's house in Mumbai. Police had recovered the letter and 20 explosive gelatine sticks from the abandoned SUV near Mukesh Ambani's residence 'Antilia' in South Mumbai on Thursday.

The content of the letter, kept next to the driver's seat in a 'Mumbai Indians' bag, was made public on Friday. Addressing the Ambani family, the threat letter further goes on to say that arrangements have been made and next time, "this material (apparently the explosive gelatine sticks) will reach you a developed state."

"Ye to sirf ek trailer hai. Neeta Bhabhi, Mukesh Bhaiyya, family ye to sirf ek jhalak hai. Agli baar ye saaman pura hokar tumhare pass aayega aur pura intezaam ho gaya hai," the letter read.

Police suspect that the accused themselves had called the police to inform them about the car parked close to Mukesh Ambani's residence in Mumbai. Sources in Mumbai Police said the plan to park a vehicle with explosives outside Mukesh Ambani's residence was being done for about a month.

According to police, the accused wanted to park the vehicle closer to Mukesh Ambani's residence 'Antilia' but due to security reasons, they left it a few hundred metres away from the industrialist's residence.

The police also said that the accused were, in a way, trying to make it apparent that they had been tracking the movement of the Ambani family. The vehicle had the same number plate as one of the vehicles in Mukesh Ambani's security detail.

Following the seizure of the vehicle, the officials from the crime branch of Mumbai Police scanned the CCTVs and zeroed-in on an Innova which was seen in the area during the time the SUV was left outside Mukesh Ambani's residence 'Antilia'.

Police sources have said that the driver of the vehicle, laden with gelatine sticks, parked the car, got down and left in an Innova car which was seen in the area. The person sitting in the Scorpio couldn't be identified as he was wearing a mask, police sources said.

The 20 gelatine sticks, found in the vehicle, were brought from a Nagpur-based company. There are many quarries in Nagpur and in nearby areas where gelatine sticks are used for explosion.

Police sources have said five suspects have been rounded up for the investigation.

Mumbai Crime Branch has traced the owner of the Scorpio car. On Thursday, 20 gelatine sticks and a threat letter were recovered from the vehicle parked a few hundred meters away from Mukesh Ambani's Antilia.

The vehicle was stolen from Mumbai's Vikhroli area seven-right days ago. Someone on behalf of the SUV owner had filed a complaint with the Vikhroli Police.

Crime Branch officials have said that the vehicle was stolen. The number plate on the Innova car suggests it is from Thane.
