The NIA had sought the extension of Waze's remand for further probe into the case.

Two other accused in the case -- suspended police constable Vinayak Shinde and cricket bookie Naresh Gor -- were remanded to 14-day judicial custody by the court.

The court also allowed the CBI to question Waze in connection with its preliminary enquiry into the allegations of corruption levelled by senior police officer Param Bir Singh against former Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh.

A Scorpio with explosives was found near Ambani's residence in south Mumbai on February 25.

Mansukh Hiran, who was in possession of the vehicle, was found dead in the Mumbra creek in Thane on March 5.
