English NewsGetting "Death Threats" From Dawood Ibrahim's Brother: MP Pragya Thakur

BJP MP Pragya Singh Thakur on Saturday complained of getting a call, in which the caller identifying himself as fugitive gangster Dawood Ibrahim’s brother Iqbal Kaskar’s man, threatened to kill her for “spreading venom against Muslims”, police said.

A purported video that runs a little over two minutes has gone viral on social media, which shows Ms Thakur speaking with the caller when he made the threat call.

Ms Thakur, who represents the Bhopal Lok Sabha constituency, complained to T T Nagar police station early on Saturday.

“Following her complaint about getting the threat call, a case under Indian Penal Code (IPC) sections 506 (criminal intimidation) and 507 (criminal intimidation by an anonymous communication) was registered in the early hours on Saturday,” T T Nagar police station’s in-charge Chen Singh Raghuvanshi told PTI.

The complaint says that she received the call on Friday night, in which the man who claimed to be close to Iqbal Kaskar, threatened to kill her, he said, adding that further investigation is underway.

In the video, Ms Thakur is seen sitting on a chair talking to the caller, who claims that he is Iqbal Kaskar’s man and will kill her soon for making comments against Muslims. When she asked who Iqbal Kaskar is, the caller said she would know soon about him when she gets killed.
