Mainpuri: Two judges here have lodged complaints with police against unknown persons for calling them up on their personal phones and threatening to deliver judgements favourable to them.

Additional District and Sessions judges S B Sharma and Lallu Singh have lodged FIRs with the Kotwali police station saying that they received calls on their mobile and landline phones from unknown persons on August 2.

According to police, the callers used abusive language and threated the two judges to act on their dictates in particular cases or face dire consequences.

ADJ Lallu Singh told PTI today that while he sent written information to Kotwali police station the same day, the FIR was not registered till August 9. The complaint by Justice Sharma was also sent to the Kotwali police soon after the incident.

Both judges said police should identify the callers from the numbers given and take action.

Terming the incident as very serious, Superintendent of Police Happy Guptan said all efforts were being made to identify the callers and bring them to book.
