A letter threatening to kill Union Home Secretary Amit Shah and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has been sent to the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), reported the ANI news agency.
According to reports, the email, which emerged on Tuesday morning, was sent to CRPF headquarters in Mumbai a few days ago. The email threatens to carry out attacks on places of worship and important facilities and to “eliminate” the two ministers with suicide bombings.
“These are 11 suicide bombers,” the letter said, according to a media report.
Taking further action on the threat, the email has been forwarded to relevant agencies for further investigation. Meanwhile, the security of the two leaders has been tightened.
“We have forwarded the email to the relevant agencies in Maharashtra and Central. They are working there and we will work according to their instructions,” Kuldiep Singh, DGP of CRPF informed.
