Security agencies on high alert after Delhi police gets an email with threat to PM Modi’s life

The Delhi Police Commissioner, Amulya Patnaik, has received an e-mail on his official id, in which there is a direct threat to Prime Minister’s life. This has sent the security establishment into a shock-wave, with the security agencies springing into action.

According to the police officials, the mail has been sent from some district in Northeast India. Though extensive search operations were conducted immediately, nothing suspicious has been found yet from the location from where the mail was sent.

The mail has a one-line message, mentioning the day and month and the year 2019 is mentioned as the year when the plot would be executed.

All the security agencies are on high alert and an extensive investigation is underway considering that previously also during the investigation of the Bhima-Koregaon violence, there were disclosures of a conspiracy plot against PM Modi.

Earlier in June, the Pune police had arrested five supposed top urban Maoist operatives from Mumbai, Nagpur and Delhi in connection which the Elgaar Parishad held at Pune’s Shaniwarwada on 31 December 2017, which is believed to have led to the subsequent Bhima Koregaon violence on 1 January. During the investigation, Pune police had recovered sensational letters from one of the suspected, arrested Maoist sympathiser and Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) alumnus Rona Wilson’s house in Delhi, wherein it was suggested that Maoists were planning a Rajiv Gandhi type assassination plot to target Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his road shows.

Over the years there have been several instances where assassination threats have been directed towards the Prime Minister. In May last year, the Coimbatore police had detained Mohammed Rafiq, 53, of Saramedu near Karumbukadai, under the National Security Act (NSA) after he was arrested on April 23 for allegedly boasting about his plan to kill Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

In addition, in June 2018, a person from Ghaziabad had threatened to shoot Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Facebook, after which an FIR was lodged against him.
