New Delhi: The Delhi Police have reported receiving two threatening calls from an individual targeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Home Minister Amit Shah, and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar. According to the authorities, the first call came in at 10:46 am, when the caller demanded Rs 10 crore and threatened to kill Bihar CM Nitish Kumar. The call was traced to the Nangloi area. Shortly after, at 10:54 am, the same caller demanded Rs 2 crore and threatened to kill Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah. Both calls were made from a mobile phone located in Paschim Vihar (East).
Upon receiving the calls, the police swiftly responded, and the SHO of Paschim Vihar (East) along with four subordinates immediately proceeded to the location. The caller was identified as Sudheer Sharma, a resident of Madhipur and a carpenter by profession. However, when the police arrived at Sudheer’s residence, he was not present, but his 10-year-old son, Ankit, was found there. Further investigation revealed that Sudheer is a habitual drinker, and the police are currently attempting to trace his whereabouts.
In response to these threats, a specialised team has been formed to actively locate and apprehend the caller.
This incident follows a similar occurrence in May, when a Delhi man was arrested for threatening to kill PM Modi. The police apprehended the individual, identified as Hemant, from Delhi’s Prasad Nagar region in Karol Bagh. According to the police, Hemant, a Raigar Pura resident, made the call while drunk.
