Bhopal: Congress MLA Brajendra Singh
Rathod on Wednesday said it has been four days into receiving a death
threat on his mobile but police have failed to find out the
identify of the caller yet.
Rathod told agency it was regrettable that the police was
unable to find the man who had threatened to kill him and
asked for a sum of Rs 20 lakh.

The MLA said that he had given information about the
April 17 call to senior police officers in Bhopal and they had
advised him not to go to the media as this would alert the
person who had made the call.

He said that two days after this when nothing happened
he had filed a FIR with the police about the call.

The Congress MLA said that when an elected
representative was being treated like this, he could
understand how the common man would suffer at the hands of
police.
In his complaint, Rathod said he was at his official
residence on April 17, when he received a call on his mobile
saying that if he did not give the amount he would be killed.
