The National Investigation Agency (NIA) had summoned

pm, the official said.

“He was questioned for more than nine hours. He left
the NIA office around 10.15 pm,” he added.

Sources said that Sharma is likely to be confronted
with suspended police officer Sachin Waze and two other
persons, who were earlier arrested by the NIA in connection
with its probe into the case.

over seven hours.

Sharma used to be a trusted officer of former Mumbai
police commissioner Param Bir Singh when the latter headed the
Thane police.

Before taking voluntary retirement, Sharma had headed
the anti-extortion cell of the Thane crime branch.

He unsuccessfully contested the 2019 Assembly election
from Nalasopara in Palghar district of Maharashtra.

An SUV laden with explosives was found parked near
industrialist Mukesh Ambani”s residence here on February 25.

Businessman Mansukh Hiran, who was in possession of
the SUV, was found dead in a creek in neighbouring Thane
district on March 5. PTI DC GK
