Investigators probing the death of Air Works technician Bharat Borge, who found pebbles in the fuel tank of industrialist Anil Ambani's helicopter, said they have not found any evidence of him being threatened by anyone prior to his death.

"We have taken the statement, recorded by Borge prior to his death, with the Crime Branch of the city police but nowhere is it indicated that he faced pressure from anyone," GRP Assistant Commissioner of Police Prakash Sawant said.

Borge was found dead on railway tracks near suburban Vile Parle station on April 28.

"We have also recorded the statements of his family members in Satara but they have only stated that he sounded tense when he spoke to them last," Sawant said.

There was no evidence to suggest that he had been threatened by anyone. It seemed like he was under a great deal of stress due to the police probe into pebbles being found in Ambani's chopper, the police official said.

Two employees of Air Works, an aircraft maintenance firm, were arrested by Crime Branch for allegedly putting the pebbles in the gearbox. However, GRP officials had said they found no evidence of the duo having abetted Borge's death.

"We have not closed investigations in the case but we still have to figure why Borge changed his routine on the day of his death," Sawant added.
