Former Indian Space Research Organisation chairman G. Madhavan Nair has been threatened by Jaish-e-Mohammed warning him not to support Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

According to reports, a letter was received at Nair’s residence in Thiruvananthapuram two days ago by security officials of CISF. The letter, which mentions the name of Jaish-e-Mohammed, was received on the same day PM Modi had announced that India has successfully tested an anti-satellite missile developed by DRDO. The letter was handed over to police for further investigation.

According to police sources, the letter warns that G Madhavan Nair will be killed by the terrorists if he does not stop supporting Narendra Modi. The former ISRO chief confirmed the receipt of the letter in the mailbox at his residence. “I have not read the letter but the investigation officers contacted me and divulged about the content of the letter,” he said.

The letter has been sent for a high-profile forensic examination and the test results are awaited. The Kerala police have already registered a case in the matter and detailed investigations are going on by multiple probe teams of the Kerala Police, said an intelligence official. Central investigating agencies also have been informed about the incident.

Nair had praised PM Modi on Wednesday for the successful launch of the A-SAT missile, saying, “Modiji has taken the initiative and he had the political will and courage to say that we will do this. We have now demonstrated this to whole world.”

Madhavan Nair retired as chairman of the ISRO in 2009 and is a Padma Bhushan and Padma Vibhushan awardee. He played a crucial role in the design and development of the cryogenic engine for the Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV). Nair had joined the BJP in October last year.
