The Rajasthan Police on Friday arrested a man, Lokesh Meena, for allegedly calling a Police Control Room and threatening to blow off the Chief Ministers Residence (CMR).
The security agencies went on high alert soon after the call was received at 9.30 a.m. After a probe, the police arrested a 26-year-old man from Jaipur Rural at 11.30 a.m. and seized his mobile phone.
The accused is a resident of Jamvaramgarh who was arrested from his residence and was brought to the Vidhayakpuri police station in Jaipur.
In the morning, he had called the PCR from his cellphone, threatening to blow off the CMR before disconnecting the phone.
The PCR in-charge then called the Jaipur commissionerate officials which alerted security officers at the CM’s residence. According to the family members of the accused, Meena is mentally unstable.
Meanwhile, security at the CM’s residence has been enhanced to avert any untoward incident, confirmed officials.
