A man on Wednesday called up Delhi Police Control Room threatening to kill Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.
However, it later turned out to be a hoax call and the caller identified was termed by police as “drunkard” and “mentally unsound”.
“A call was received around 6:16 pm at the police control room today but it was later found to be hoax. The caller was later identified as Ravinder Kumar Tiwari, a resident of north east Delhi’s Khajuri Khas area. When local police reached his home, neighbours told them that he is a drunkard and mentally unsound. He hasn’t been found yet,” said a senior police officer.
The officer added that Tiwari said he will shoot Kejriwal but when asked about his identity, he only said, “I will reveal my identity only if I am shot dead.”
Sources said as a precautionary measure, the Chief Minister’s Office was informed about the call.
