Tamil Nadu BJP president Tamilisai Soundararajan has received a letter threatening her with dire consequences and a probe was on, police said today. The letter addressed to her was sent by post and received by the party office “Kamalalayam,” on June 6. It was, however, opened only today. “A sheet of paper inside the envelope was laced with a type of explosive chemical, usually found in firecrackers and a probe is on,” a senior police officer told PTI. The letter had used abusive language against the BJP leader and a similar letter was received three days ago at her Virugambakkam residence, another officer said.
Though no explicit words were used about carrying out a “bomb threat” to the BJP office or the state unit chief, a wick was attached to the explosive laced paper and it is perceived to “symbolise a bomb threat,” the officer said. Tamilisai said the letter had used “filthy, foul language,” which no one could read. “The letter received at party office appears to be a copy of a letter I got at my residence.
