Not First Threat To CM Yogi Adityanath

This is not the first time CM Yogi Adityanath has faced such threats. He’s been threatened several times. He was threatened with death on Facebook a week ago. The post was uploaded on Facebook by Aman Raza of Baghpat. The individual threatened CM Yogi in the post. Soon after the post went viral, the police swooped in and arrested the offenders.

Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde received a death threat only in April. According to sources, an anonymous caller dialled the Maharashtra police control centre and delivered a death threat, adding,  “I will blow up Eknath Shinde,” before disconnecting the call abruptly. The Maharashtra police received a call on the emergency line 112 from someone threatening to blow up the state’s Chief Minister Eknath Shinde. When the police received the threatening call, they promptly went into action and tracked down the caller’s location. The caller, a resident of Mumbai’s Dharavi district, was later detained by Pune police.

The caller was under the effect of alcohol at the time of the call, according to the interrogator. In April, Shiv Sena (Uddhav Thackeray) leader and Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Raut got a threat SMS. According to news agency ANI, the threat came from the Lawrence Bishnoi gang, who warned he would be slain in Delhi like Punjabi singer Sidhu Moose Wala. According to the police, Sanjay Raut filed a complaint, and an investigation is currently underway.
