The Mumbai cop Sachin Waze who was later on Monday suspended after his arrest by the National Intelligence Agency for his connection with the Ambani security scare case is being claimed to be a member of state ruling party Shiv Sena by the opposition as the Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray was not ambitious for taking actions against him.
He is a 1990-bunch official of the state unit and is famous as one of the pro sharpshooters. He is said to have killed 63 people in his many years of profession. He was suspended from the police power in 2004 regarding the homicide and obliteration of proof in the Khwaja Yunus custodial passing case. During the period of 2005-2007 he made repeated attempts to get back to his former position but could not achieve it. He later resigned too but that too was not acknowledged. the power, however that also was not acknowledged. So, finally in 2008 he joined Shiv Sena.
The party leaders of Shiv Sena said that his entry was not any surprise as those who had killed the gangsters in Mumbai were welcomed by the Sena Chief and founder Bal Thackeray. However, Waze earlier said that he had joined the party by the support of Sena leader Eknath Shinde, who was from Thane district.
“Vaze was never an active member of the party. He took the primary membership in 2008, but never renewed it and therefore it expires automatically,” a senior party functionary said. Although, he has never resigned from the party as well.
The Mumbai cop got back his position in the police force in June last year, a few months after the Shiv Sena Chief Uddhav Thackeray took charge as the Chief Minister. It was also observed when Sena leader Sanjay Raut was defending the cop by calling him as “honest” and “Capable”.
However, the party leaders of Shiv Sena denied about Waze’s link with the party. The party would not have supported him if he was involved in any sort of wrongdoing, said Sena.
A BJP leader and former Chief Minister of state Devendra Fadnavis on Sunday said, the unjustified support and trust of the state government made Waze think that he could do anything and that’s why dared to plan out the scare in Antilia.
