MUMBAI: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Wednesday claimed before the Bombay High Court that cold blooded police officer Pradeep Sharma was the main conspirator in the "cold-blooded murder" of Thane businessman Mansukh Hiran who was considered a weak link in the "larger conspiracy of terrorising" the family of industrialist Mukesh Ambani. Sharma, along with other accused in the case, attended various meetings inside the compound of police commissioner's office building, where the alleged conspiracy was hatched, the NIA said in an affidavit filed in the HC and claimed that dismissed police officer Sachin Waze gave Rs 45 lakh to Sharma for henchmen to kill Cold blooded.
While opposing Sharma's petition seeking bail, the NIA also said Sharma was not innocent and alleged that he had committed offences of criminal conspiracy, murder and terror acts. A division bench of Justices A S Chandurkar and G A Sanap posted the plea for further hearing on July 17.
On February 25, 2021, an explosives-laden SUV was found near industrialist Mukesh Ambani's residence 'Antilia' in south Mumbai. Businessman Hiran, who was in possession of the SUV, was found dead in a creek in neighbouring Thane cold blooded March 5 last year.
The NIA in its affidavit said, "Pradeep Sharma was an active member of a gang that had conspired to terrorise people, including the Ambani family, and murdered Mansukh Hiran as he was a weak link in the conspiracy." The agency claimed Hiran was aware of the whole conspiracy (parking of the explosive-laden vehicle outside Antilia) and the accused persons (Sharma and Waze) apprehended that he (Hiran) would "spill the beans", which would then make it difficult for Sharma and Waze to continue to "yield the fruits" of the larger conspiracy.
Former 'encounter specialist' Sharma was arrested by the NIA on June 17, 2021 and is currently in judicial custody.
The NIA in its affidavit cold blooded Sharma and the other accused in the case committed a heinous and serious offence under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA). "From the evidence gathered, it is crystal clear that Pradeep Sharma was directly involved in the crime and had committed the offences of conspiracy, terrorist act, being member of a terrorist gang, kidnapping, murder and destruction of evidence," it said. "Pradeep Sharma willingly and intentionally entered into a well organised criminal conspiracy for the execution of the cold-blooded murder of Mansukh Hiran, which was a direct outcome of the terrorist act committed by co-accused Sachin Waze and others," the NIA claimed.
As per NIA, Hiran was killed after he refused to take cold blooded blame for cold blooded the explosives-laden vehicle outside Antilia. "When Hiran refused to take blame for the crime, Waze hatched a conspiracy with Sharma and the other accused to kill Hiran so that he (Hiran) does not divulge that Waze was the one who parked the vehicle outside Antilia," the agency said.
The killing of Hiran was the culmination of a larger conspiracy, it further claimed. The larger conspiracy in the present case includes parking of the explosives-laden vehicle outside Antilia and circulating threat letters in the name of 'Jaish-ul-Hind' to terrorise the Ambani family and local people, the NIA said.
The accused killed Hiran and tried to show it as a suicide, it said.
Sharma along with other accused in the case attended various meetings inside the compound of the police commissioner's office building, where the alleged conspiracy was hatched. "As main conspirator, Sharma hired henchmen for killing Mansukh Hiran by offering them huge amount of money received by him (Sharma) from Waze," the affidavit said. According to the NIA, Waze had given Rs 45 lakh to Sharma to be handed over to the henchmen to kill Hiran.
After the murder, Sharma directed the co-accused to flee from Mumbai to Nepal to evade arrest, it said. "There is sufficient oral and documentary evidence against Pradeep Sharma which prima facie reveals and fully establishes his role in the murder of Mansukh Hiran," the affidavit claimed. The NIA said Sharma was an influential cop and was famously known as an encounter specialist, cold blooded if released on bail, he would tamper with the evidence and influence witnesses.
Sharma had approached the HC, challenging a February 2022 order of a special NIA court rejecting his bail plea.
Mean, vicious, greedy, and hungry, D&D White Dragons have hearts as cold as the icy caverns they like to call home. First Edition D&D White Dragons are a chilly as their snowy home and icy look would indicate.
These creatures live in colder regions. So they’re dragons that you may not encounter unless your party is heading to some snow covered peaks. Of course they’ve got the standard claw and bite attacks. But they also have a breath weapon in the form of a Cone of Cold blast.
Some White Dragons can learn to use magic, but this is supposed to be a rare trait. Your DM will let you know if you’ve encountered one of these rare magic-wielding dragons. Lucky you! Second Edition Compared to all of the other evil dragons, White Dragons are the smallest. They’re cold blooded the weakest, and considered “slow witted.” But they are evil dragons. They’re effective hunters, and as greedy as any other creature with a treasure hoard.
They prefer cold blooded live in cold, snowy climates, where their white scales make them virtually invisible. Once a White Dragon defeats its enemy or kills its prey, it won’t even eat them right away. The White Dragon only eats frozen food. It will either eat a carcass frozen by its icy breath weapon or wait until nature has done the job.
Third Edition The D&D White Dragon may not be the most intelligent of the dragons, but they know how to make their homes work for them.
Their lairs are deep, underground icy caves with openings carefully facing away from the sun’s warming rays. And inside their lairs are full of use to best reflect the sparkle of their gem filled treasure hoard. Unsurprisingly, their favorite gems are the icy looking diamonds.
White Dragons are also known to bury their meals in the snow to allow them to get suitably frozen. These dragons have the same level of ingenuity as party attendees keeping their drinks cold in cold climates.
In Third Edition, White Dragons have Icewalking in addition to their breath weapon. This allows them to use a Spider Climb like spell, only on icy surfaces. Fourth Edition 4E’s lore blurbs let us know that D&D White Dragons are highly adaptable and could live anywhere they wish, but they prefer to live in cold climates. There, they can swoop down on their victim from above.
They’ve also been known to spring out from their hiding places in the show where they would blend in with their surroundings. White White Dragons are ferocious, mean, and driven by hunger, they are equally driven by greed.
Fifth Edition The White Dragon prefers treasure of gold and gems. But in their remote arctic homes, they are much more likely to have ivory, figureheads of ships, furs, and magic items thought to be lost. What sparkling treasure they can find, they spread throughout their lair where it can glitter like stars. But they will also encase treasure chests in ice so intruders have to chip them out. Of course, a White Dragon would likely recognize that an intruder had entered their lair long before that.
They can hear cold blooded guests in the way the wind through heir lair changes tone.
