NEW DELHI: The

National Investigation Agency

on Wednesday invokved the stringent Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA) against suspended Mumbai police officer

Sachin Waze

, who has been arrested in connection with the

Mukesh Ambani

security scare case.
Waze is currently in

NIA

custody in connection with the recovery of an explosives-laden SUV found abandoned near industrialist Mukesh Ambani's residence last month.
He is also being probed by the

Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad

(ATS) for being the prime accused in the death of businessman Mansukh Hiran, who was identified as the owner of the SUV.
The ATS had last week arrested suspended policeman Vinayak Shinde and cricket bookie Naresh Gaur in the Hiran murder case.
"After the arrest of both these men, ATS found Waze is a prime accused in the case and played a vital role," the ATS chief told reporters.
"We need his custody and will approach the court on March 25," Singh added.
UAPA empowers the central government to designate an individual a “terrorist” if he or she is found committing, preparing for, promoting, or involved in an act of terror.
