Mumbai

: Taking a serious view of the Anil Ambani helicopter sabotage case, Air Works has asked 52 of its non-technical helper staff to remain off duty till the investigations are over.
Air Works handles repair and maintenance for Anil’s Bell 412 chopper, which was recently found with stones in one of its fuel tanks.
“Air Works has “advised’’ 52 of its non-technical helper staff to remain off duty till the investigation is over,’’ a company spokesperson said. Air Works has 60 non-technical helpers; there are a total of 200 employees, officials and managerial staff in Mumbai.
Police officials suspect that a dispute between an employees’ union of Air Works and the management is the reason behind the sabotage attempt.
The matter pertains to a police case filed by an Air Works official on Thursday alleging that unknown persons had tried to sabotage Anil’s chopper, which was parked in their hangar for repair and maintenance. The case was transferred to the crime branch the next day after a senior Reliance pilot alleged that stones were put in the fuel tanks with an intention to kill.
On Saturday, four Air Works employees were questioned by a crime branch special team. Officials said two of these employees were part of a team that was assigned the maintenance and repair work of the particular chopper; the other two employees were called in on suspicion. Crime branch officials also visited the Mumbai airport and examined the spot where the chopper was parked.
