The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has opposed the plea filed by dismissed cop Sachin Waze in Mumbai court seeking temporary house custody in order to recuperate after his recent bypass surgery. .The NIA submitted that Waze is likely to abscond if the plea for house arrest is allowed."Great prejudice would be caused to the case of the prosecution at hand as there is every possibility that the applicant accused will abscond, if house arrest is granted to said accused," the NIA stated in its affidavit filed before the special court. Waze had sought permission from the special court for temporary 'house custody' for a period of three months to enable him to recover in a safe, sterile and stress-free environment.He had also sought permission to consult his lawyer in person in his house in the presence of security guards while he is in house custody. The plea stated that Waze should not be sent back to Taloja jail where he will not get the post operative care and could be exposed to more infections..NIA has opposed the grant of house arrest to Waze stating it was against the settled position of law and justice. NIA informed the Court that the hospitals in Mumbai attached to Taloja Central Prison are fully competent and aided with all modern facilities to take care of the health condition of the applicant. .The investigating agency further submitted that Waze's application was based on conjectures and surmises and was completely silent over the exact date of discharge by the private hospital. .Waze's plea highlighted the observations made by Bombay High Court on the abysmal jail conditions at Taloja jail in its order granting interim bail to the Bhima Koregaon accused Dr. Varavara Rao who was lodged in the same prison as Waze. However, NIA submitted that the the facts in Rao's case are totally different to the facts in Waze's case..Waze, prime accused in the case connected to an explosives-laden SUV found outside Reliance Industries Chairperson Mukesh Ambani’s residence and the death of businessman Mansukh Hiren was permitted to be admitted to private hospital for treatment. .Waze's lawyer, Rounak Naik and Aarti Kalekar, informed the Court that after the surgery, he was shifted to the Intensive Care Unit and his sutures were removed on Monday after which he is likely to be discharged. They prayed that the hospital authorities be directed not to discharge Waze from hospital until then..Special Judge AT Wankhede enquired with about Waze's medical report including the precautionary measures to be taken after discharge from hospital. Upon perusal of report on September 29, 2021, the Court will pass appropriate orders.
