A similar threat call was made at the same hospital on August 15 and the caller was arrested by the police.

This is the third time Mr. Ambani has received threats, the first time was on February 24, 2021, when a car was found outside his residence in Mumbai containing 20 gelatin sticks and a note threatening his family.

An FIR was registered at the Gamdevi police station and subsequently, an FIR was registered at Vikhroli police station for the theft of the aforementioned car along with an accidental death report pertaining to the recovery of the dead body of Mansukh Hiren.

Hiren, 48, was the alleged owner of the car who had reported about its absence a week earlier to the local police. However, on March 5, 2021 his body was found dumped in a creek. After three days, the case was transferred from the Maharashtra police to the National Investigation Agency. On March 13, 2021, encounter specialist and police officer Sachin Vaze was arrested for his “role and involvement in placing the explosives laden vehicle.”
