Anna Hazare gets threat letter, asked to dissociate from Arvind Kejriwal

Mumbai: Social activist Anna Hazare has received a threat letter which states that he would be "bumped off" if he does not dissociate himself from AAP leader and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal.

"The letter is dated August 7 and is mostly written in English," a police official told PTI.

The letter warns that Hazare will meet the fate of rationalist Narendra Dabholkar, who was killed in Pune two years back. It also asked the Gandhian to stay put in his native Ralegan Siddhi village, police said.

A case has been registered under IPC section 506 (criminal intimidation) at Parner police station in Ahmednagar district.

Hazrae had met Kejriwal and his deputy Manish Sisodia at Delhi's Maharashtra Sadan last month and told them that Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav should not have been expelled from the party, suggesting that there should be reconciliation as the two are "old colleagues".
