Following the complaint, two Police personnel were stationed outside Arya’s house.

He said, “They threatened us to take back the case. We replied that their threats wouldn’t scare us. August 18 is the next date in the case, and the judgment will be in favour of Hindus.” He further alleged some terrorist organizations were behind the threats. Arya served as VHP vice president in 1984 and was also associated with RSS.
