Reliance-Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group, or R-Adag, controlled by billionaire industrialist Anil Ambani, may be interested in developing the countryâ€™s largest container terminal that is to come up at the Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust, or JN Port, in Navi Mumbai, and which will cost an estimated Rs6,700 crore.

Whether or not Bharat Borge’s death was an accident, the crime branch believes the Air Works technician, who discovered sabotage in Anil Ambani‘s chopper, was a man who knew too much.
We are sure that Borge knew who had put gravel in the fuel tank of Anil Ambani’s chopper,” said a crime branch source.
Borge was found dead on the railway tracks at Vile Parle on April 28 and could have been under pressure from the police as well as the ADA group to disclose names of the culprits, sources said. Borges, who had spotted stones and gravel in the fuel tank on the evening of April 23 and reported it to his seniors, refused to give any names to the police even after three days of questioning.

The case took a bizarre twist this week: the technician who discovered the suspected sabotage turned up dead. Bharat Borge’s body was discovered on suburban Mumbai railway tracks after he was apparently hit by a train â€“ a death police are calling suicide but Borge’s family believes was murder.
