Chief Minister is godfather of Sachin Vaze, must resign immediately: Narayan Rane

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Friday upped the ante against its former ally Shiv Sena over the arrest of Mumbai cop Sachin Vaze in connection with the Antilia bomb scare case. Senior party leader Narayan Singh Rane has claimed that Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray is the “godfather of the arrested cop” and that he should quit forthwith.
“Chief Minister is the godfather of Sachin Vaze. He should resign,” he told India TV. Rane said that Vaze was suspended from the duty, but “it was the Chief Minister who reinstated him and gave him the charge of the Crime Intelligence Unit”. “Vaze was reinstated to the police department only because of the Chief Minister,” the former Maharashtra CM added.
Uddhav, the Shiv Sena supremo, is facing intense heat from the opposition over Vaze’s link to his party. Uddhav heads a three-party alliance government comprising the Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress.Vaze, arrested in the probe into recovery of explosives from a car near industrialist Mukesh Ambani’s residence, has already confessed his role in the case. An assistant police inspector with the Mumbai Police, he was arrested by the NIA. Sources told India TV that he was involved in placing gelatin sticks in the SUV that was found parked near Ambani’s multi-storey residence ‘Antilia’ on February 25, and that when he was questioned about it, he admitted his involvement.
He has arrested under IPC sections 286 (negligent conduct with respect to explosive substance) 465 (forgery), 473 (making or possessing counterfeit seal, etc with intent to commit forgery), 506(2) (punishment for criminal intimidation), 120 B (criminal conspiracy) and relevant provisions of the Explosive Substances Act.
