Mumbai: Maharashtra Home Minister Dilip Walse Patil while speaking to reporters about an alleged threat letter sent to minister Aaditya Thackeray, by a Bengaluru man claiming to be a fan of late actor Sushant Singh Rajput, said that a state-level SIT will be formed to probe the matter. Earlier Maharashtra Minister Nawab Malik claimed that he too has received such threats in the past and suspects that the same organisations that murdered Narendra Dabholkar and Govind Pansare, have a hand behind it.
“I think it is a serious matter. After losing power, some organisations are behaving in this manner. Home Department will probe it and find out who is behind it. They will be nabbed and punished, “Malik said. “The manner in which Aaditya Thackeray received a threat letter, we suspect if it’s connected to the organisations that murdered (Narendra) Dabholkar and (Govind) Pansare. I too have received such threats. We’ve written for an investigation into it,” Malik said.
A 34-year-old man, who claimed to be a fan of late actor Sushant Singh Rajput has been arrested for allegedly issuing death threats to Maharashtra minister Aaditya Thackeray. The accused, identified as Jaysingh Rajput was arrested from Bengaluru by a team from cyber police, said officials.
