In his WhatsApp status, Vaze wrote, "3rd March 2004, fellow officers from CID arrested me in a false case, that arrest is inconclusive till date. Sensing history is going to repeat. My fellow officers are on to falsely trap me. There's a slight difference in the scenario, then probably I had 17 years of hope, patience, life and service too. Now I will have, neither 17 years of further life nor service, not patience to live. I think the time to say goodbye to the world is coming closer" (sic).
Meanwhile, Vaze had moved to Thane Court seeking ABA in the murder of Hiren however the court has rejected his application and kept the matter for hearing on March 19.
