Pune: The FTII (Films & Television Institute of India) here on Saturday reportedly received a parcel containing bomb materials and a letter threatening to kill JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar.
A panic was created inside the campus after the incident.
According to media reports, the parcel contained explosive powder, detonator and a letter threatening to kill the student leader.
ANI reported that Prashant Pathrabe, the Chairman of Film and Television Institute of India (FTII) Pune, received the parcel containing detonator with a yellow chemical on Saturday evening.
Meanwhile, the Maharashtra Police have registered an FIR against unknown people in Deccan Gymkhana Police Station here.
Kanhaiya, who was charged with sedition in connection with pro-Afzal event, is currently out on bail.
Kanhaiya had raised the issue of FTII on several occasions and criticised the Centre for appointing film actor Gajendra Chauhan as the institution's head.
The actor is known for his association with BJP.
Kanhaiya is considered as a ‘hero’ by a section of the student fraternity in FTII because of his left-leanings.
The letter sent to Kanhaiya is not the first death warning he has received.
