A court here on Saturday extended the custody of suspended police officer Sachin Waze till April 7 in the case of an explosives-laden SUV found near industrialist Mukesh Ambani's house and businessman Mansukh Hiran's death.

Waze, arrested on March 13, was produced before the special court here after his earlier remand expired.

The Investigation Agency sought his remand for another six days.

Additional Solicitor General Anil Singh, the lawyer, said the agency had recovered incriminating evidence such as digital video recording (DVR) of CCTV footage and laptops and it needed to be examined.

The court after hearing both the sides extended Waze's custody till April 7.

An explosives-laden Scorpio was found near Ambani's residence here on February 25. Mansukh Hiran, who had claimed that the vehicle had been stolen from his possession a week earlier, was found dead in a creek in Thane on March 5.
