Similar Threats Received Earlier

In month of May this year, death threats were sent to the UP Police against the Chief Minister in a similar manner. The threats were sent vias WhatsApp messages on the UP Police social media cell number.

In the same month, the UP police had nabbed a Bihar constable named Tanveer Khan from Ghazipur after he posted on Facebook calling for the killing of CM Yogi.

Action Against Gangster Mukhtar Ansari

The UP government has been pulling down the illegal properties of criminals in the state recently. Last month, the Lucknow administration had demolished an illegal house belonging to gangster-turned-politician Mukhtar Ansari who is currently in jail. The government had announced that the cost incurred in pulling down illegal properties will be recovered from their owners. Several properties worth over 3 crore belonging to close aides of Ansari were also seized by the police.
