The woman (name withheld) had been working to “whitewash” Waze’s black money, NIA officials said. She did this by using two IDs, and she had the note-counting machine which was found in Waze’s Mercedes car last month.
The probe agency on Thursday also carried out searches at a hotel-cum-club at Babulnath and claimed to have recovered documents related to the eight SIM cards used by Waze in the case of murder of Thane businessman Mansukh Hiran, whose Scorpio was found with explosives outside industrialist Mukesh Ambani’s residence on February 25.
Sources said the person who ran the establishment employed one of the accused , Naresh Gor, on Waze’s instructions. Officials said that Waze had instructed Naresh to procure SIM cards for his personal use. Gor procured the SIM cards from Gujarat and they were handed over to Waze through co-accused constable Vinayak Shinde, officials said. One of the cards was used to call Hiran on March 4. The next day, his body was found floating in a creek in Mumbra.
