Mumbai, April 29 (IANS) There was no evidence of any corporate or business rivalry behind an attempt to sabotage industrialist Anil Ambani’s helicopter, Maharashtra Home Minister Jayant Patil said here Wednesday.
“It is nothing of that sort and the police are heading towards a correct conclusion,” Patil told mediapersons here.

The Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group (ADAG) last week wrote to Chief Minister Ashok Chavan demanding a Crime Branch inquiry into the conspiracy after a technician found pebbels and mud in the fuel tank of the chopper.

On Wednesday, ADAG cancelled its four-year-old maintenance contract with Air Works.

It has alleged that business rivals may be behind the “attempt to murder” the industrialist by trying to sabotage his helicopter.

Patil also pointed out that Bharat Borge, the technician with Airworks who was found dead in mysterious circumstances Tuesday, was not a suspect in the case.

The home minister said the police had got some important clues and the probe was expected to be over in six days.
