BJP’s former Rajasthan chief receives death threats via WhatsApp

Ashok Parnami the former BJP state chief in Rajasthan has been receiving death threats via WhatsApp, PTI has reported. As per BJP’s spokesperson Anand Sharma, Parnami received the first in the series of life threatening messages on Sunday. The message supposedly demanded that Pranami pay extortion money in the next three days to escape his fate.

The report claims that Pranami didn’t pay much heed to the initial threats after which the unknown criminal threatened to kill his family, which resulted in the lodging of a police complaint.

As per a Bhaskar report, the extortionist introduced himself as Ali Baba Bundel and even threatened Parnami via a WhatsApp call. After the police was informed, they heightened the security in front of the BJP leader’s house and started investigating the phone numbers, via which the threats are being sent.

A local report by Patrika claims that the threats are being made by individuals based in Dubai. As per the report, in light of the threats, security has been extended to the family members of Pranami and a total of 17 policemen have been deputed for the same. A police picket too has been established in front of Pranami’s house.

The report details that following the text on Monday which threatened to kill Pranami’s family members, the police was informed but the authorities didn’t associate much weight to it.

Later as per the report, the accused was identified as a notorious criminal who even chided the police to adopt newer techniques if they wished to catch him. Following this the security was beefed up.

Despite police involvement the threats have continued, one of which was received at 5:35 PM on Tuesday. The accused was seen online on the messaging service till 7:30 PM on Tuesday.

Owing to the police taking the matter seriously, they have decided to involve the Anti Terror Squad (ATS) officials in the case to try and nab the accused.
