Mumbai police received a terror mail threatening to blow up the PM and the Narendra Modi stadium in Ahmedabad if the Indian government failed to pay ₹500 crore and release notorious gangster Lawrence Bishnoi.
It must be noted that several matches are scheduled at the stadium as part of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup starting October 28. The email also mentioned that the terrorist group have already deployed people to carry out the attacks.
Currently, Bishnoi is lodged in Mandoli jail, Delhi. According to the police, the threat mail was initially sent to the National Investigation Agency (NIA), which apparently originated in Europe, and the federal agency alerted the Mumbai police about the same.
“We have received the email from the NIA, which has alerted all concerned agencies in other places as well. We also got the email ID from which the NIA got the email and are trying to trace that as well, and prima facie it seems that the mail has come from Europe,” a police officer said, adding that the message appears to be a hoax or mischief played by someone sitting in a foreign country, but they have still launched the manhunt for the sender, and the security of all cricket matches will be reviewed and beefed up if required.
“We will blow up Narendra Modi and the Narendra Modi stadium as well if the government fails to pay us ₹ 500 crore and release Lawrence Bishnoi. Everything sells in Hindustan, so we too have bought something. No matter how much you secure, you won’t be able to remain safe from us. If you wish to talk, do so on this email,” read the email sent to the NIA.
A case has been already registered against Khalistani leader Gurpatwant Singh Pannun who had threatened to attack the World Cup matches. He had even threatened to take revenge for Shaheed Nijar’s assassination three weeks ago.
