An unidentified caller has threatened to kill Prime Minister Narendra Modi with bomb and a man from Satna has claimed that he has received the alleged phone call, reports said on Monday.
The man has lodged a report about the bomb threat against PM Narendra Modi with Ramnagar Police Station and has handed over the phone recording of the alleged conversation.
The man has claimed that he received a phone call from this number 79651219. The caller has threatened a bomb blast at a mega rally scheduled to be held in Mumbai’s Kalyan on May 25, he said.
He said that the unidentified caller is allegedly making plans to orchestrate the bomb attack and has claimed that he has convinced two persons and wanted to get him too involved. The caller also offered him Rs 50 crore in return of helping him carry out the attack.
The Satna man didn’t take the call seriously thinking it might be a prank call, but he was panicked after knowing the mobile number and hearing the dangerous plans of the caller. The man then rushed to Ramnagar Police Station and lodged a written complaint.
The police have launched an investigation into the matter, however, it has not ruled out the possibility that it might be a hoax call.

“The call has been received from an 8-digit number from a foreign country. The caller’s accent seems to be Gujarati. Now Satna Police and Cyber Cell are investigating the matter. The Bhopal ATS has arrested two Pakistani spies Balram and Rajiv from Satna district. Thus, we are taking the matter of the threat call seriously,” SHO, Satna said.
The number when checked on internet shows the location of Ahmedabad, Gujarat.
