Mumbai : One day after an abandoned SUV was found outside Mukesh Ambani's residence in Mumbai, the police has claimed that they have recovered a note from the vehicle that gives a warning to the Ambanis. The owner of the vehicle has also been traced, who had reported theft of his car a couple of months back.

In the CCTV footage, a man in a mask and a hoodie has been seen parking the car outside the Ambani's residence.

In the initial search, a group of number plates have also been found inside the car that was parked on Carmichael Road in south Mumbai.

Twenty gelatin sticks - material used in explosives -- were found in the car by the bomb disposal squad, the police said yesterday.

A handwritten note has also been recovered that addresses Mukesh Ambani and Nita Ambani. It has been written in English, however the language of it is Hindi. The number plate is fake and the car was stolen from another part of the city, Vikhroli, the police said.

The cops are now looking at several CCTV footages to trace the route of the car in the city. An Innova car seen following the car has also been tracked down.

The gelatin was not military grade but of the commercial kind that is usually used in construction, digging or mining, police sources say.

In a statement, Reliance Industries said: "We are thankful to Mumbai Police for their quick and immediate action. We are confident that Mumbai Police will complete their thorough investigation quickly."
