After a car laden with explosives was found near the residence of the industrialist Mukesh Ambani on Thursday, Mumbai Police called in the bomb squad and is currently investigating the matter.
Reportedly, around 20 gelatin sticks were found in a green SUV abandoned on Carmichael Road in Mumbai’s posh Pedder Road area. The SUV had a wrong number plate and was found about 600 metres away from Ambani’s house.
A handwritten letter in broken English addressed to Mukesh and Neeta Ambani was also found in the car.
The writers called the planted explosives a 'trailer' and threatened to return later with more preparations to assassinate the whole family. The security has been increased outside the Ambani house.
