The cyber cell of the Delhi Police on Wednesday claimed to have received a call from an unknown caller who threatened to kill Prime Minister Narendra Midi, Union Home Minister Amit Shah and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.
According to the news agency IANS, the threat call was received by the outer district unit of Delhi Police, which swung into action after receiving the threat cal.
Two calls were received by the Police Control Room, which were made by the same caller who is yet to be identified. “Promptly responding to the alarming calls, a team was swiftly deployed to trace the location of the anonymous caller,” a senior police official was quoted as saying by the news agency IANS.
“The cyber cell of Outer district has also been engaged to analyse the digital footprints of the threatening messages, aiming to gather vital evidence that may aid in identifying the suspect,” the official added.
In view of the threat call, Delhi Police has launched a comprehensive investigation into the matter, leveraging advanced technological tools to trace the origin of the calls.
However, Delhi Police soon identified the man who made the threatening call. He was identified as Sudheer Sharma, who works as a carpenter. A manhunt has been initiated to trace and nab him. Sharing more details, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Outer) Harendra K Singh said that a PCR call was received on Wednesday at 10:46 AM in which the caller threatened to kill Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar if not given Rs 10 crore. “Its location was found in the Nangloi area. Again at 10:54 AM, the same caller threatened to kill Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah if not given Rs two crore.
The location of the caller was in Paschim Vihar (East). The Station House Officer (SHO) Paschim Vihar (East) police station along with his four subordinates immediately moved to the location,” said the DCP. Eventually, the caller`s address was traced. “It is Sudheer Sharma who lives in the Madhipur area. He was not available at his address but his 10-year-old son Ankit was found there,” said the official.
On further inquiry, it has come out that the person is a habitual drinker and consumes alcohol during the day time also. “His son told the team that his father had been drinking since early this morning. When Ankit was asked to talk to him, he was responding very incoherently. Our team is constantly trying to trace the person,” the DCP added.
