Mumbai, February 25

A suspicious vehicle with gelatin, an explosive material, inside was found parked near industrialist Mukesh Ambani’s house in Mumbai on Thursday evening, police said.

The vehicle was found on Carmichael Road near ‘Antilia’, Ambani’s residence, a police official said.

A Bomb Detection and Disposal Squad (BDDS) team reached the spot immediately, he said.

It was not an assembled explosive device, he said, adding that further investigation was on.

Maharashtra home minister Anil Deshmukh told news channels that the vehicle, a Scorpio van, was found some distance away from the multi-storey residence of Ambani, the chairman of Reliance Industries.

The Crime Branch of Mumbai police is conducting probe, he said. PTI
