After an unidentified caller threatened to kill Uttar Pradesh chief minister, Yogi Adityanath, the case has been handed over to the UP Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS). The probe into a phone call received by Delhi Police in which the caller threatened to kill UP CM is going on.
“We have handed over the probe to the ATS. As the call was made using voice-over Internet Protocol (VoIP), it could not be traced. We are working on it,” additional director general of police (law-and-order), Anand Kumar told reporters in Lucknow.
Delhi police was panicked after a duty officer received a call on his landline number at 3 pm on Thursday. As per a senior police officer, “The caller said you have only an hour to save Adityanath and disconnected the call.”
Subsequently, police said the call turned out to be a hoax. Delhi Police’s Special Cell is also looking into the case.
