Udit Narayan receives death threats
An AEC officer said Narayan had received three threat calls in the past one month from the same number.
The officer who is in charge of this case said, “As per Narayan’s statement, the caller has been abusing and threatening him. We have increased patrolling near Narayan’s residence. Police personnel have been deployed in the vicinity in plain clothes to keep constant watch on suspicious people.
According to reports, the singer received his first call a month ago, followed by second one on July 17 and third one on July 23. During inquiry, police found the number was registered in the name of Narayan’s building security guard who has lost his phone three months ago while traveling by train to Bihar.
Officers said it appears as if the caller might have stolen or found the mobile phone
of the security guard in which Narayan’s number was saved.
