Mumbai: A day after Uttar Pardesh Police’s social media help desk received threatening message to kill Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, the Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS), arrested a 25-year-old man from Mumbai on Saturday.
Kamran Khan, a resident of Chunabhatti in eastern suburbs, was arrested by the Kalachowki unit of ATS, the official said.
Uttar Pradesh Police’s social media help desk had received a WhatsApp message on Friday in which the sender threatened to kill Adityanath in a bomb blast.
The message was traced to Mumbai followed by which UP police alerted Maharashtra ATS.
He will be produced before a court and handed over to UP police’s Special Task Force on transit remand, the official said.
