"A letter was also found in the car with the explosives near Antilia," the police source revealed. "The handwritten letter was in broken English with grammatical mistakes and was addressed to Mukesh and Nita Ambani."

"It is basically a threat letter calling the planted explosives a 'trailer' and a warning to return with more preparations to assassinate the whole family later," the source added.
