The Delhi Police have arrested the hoax caller who called the Delhi Police control room on February 27 and threatened of a bomb blast at Mau, Uttar Pradesh where Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed an election rally today. On Sunday evening, Mau ASP RK Singh confirmed that an attack was being planned on PM Modi during his visit to the town after the local police received information of life threat to the PM during his visit from Rasool Pati who was accused in the murder case of Haren Pandya. According to an India Today report, the caller that was arrested by the Delhi police is a Delhi University student, who has been identified as Deepak (21 years old). During the investigation police found that Deepak was outraged that PM did not fulfil his election campaign promises so he made the call to prevent the Mau rally from taking place.

Reportedly, the caller had informed the police that Rasool Pati along with his associates was planning to attack PM Narendra Modi’s cavalcade with rocket launcher/vans with explosives. Upon getting the information PM Modi’s security has been enhanced. Rasool Pati is one of the accused in the murder case of Gujarat’s former Home Minister Haren Pandya who was killed in 2003 when he was sitting in his car after his morning walk in the Law Garden area in Ahmedabad. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is currently promoting Bharatiya Janata Party for the Uttar Pradesh Assembly election and is in Mau for the same. BJP is trying to fight the newly formed alliance between Samajwadi Party and Congress in the state.
