Shiv Sena leader faked threats to get security: Ludhiana Police
The Ludhiana Police on Wednesday exposed a criminal conspiracy that was hatched by some members of the outfit, Shiv Sena Hind, to get police gunmen for themselves and to create a rift between Hindu-Sikh communities.
Police Commissioner RN Dhoke said Sanchit Malhotra had lodged a complaint at Salem Tabri police station and with CP Ludhiana on September 1 that he and Rohit Sahni had received threats from Sikh radicals.
He claimed two Sikh radicals came to the house of Sanchit Malhotra at Sardar Nagar on a motorcycle and one person disembarked from the vehicle and threw pamphlets on the bonnet of a car. The CCTV video shows the same.
On September 27, Sanchit Malhotra reported to Salem Tabri police station and other higher officers that he had received death threats from an unknown number through Whatsapp. These messages threatened to kill him and Rohit Sahni within 10 days. The police team led by Rattan Singh Brar, ADCP-1, immediately started a detailed enquiry into the matter and eventually found out that a conspiracy was hatched by the duo and the whole story was concocted.
The mobile device used for threatening them was traced and was sold from the mobile shop of Rizwan at Vardhaman Nagar, Ludhiana, to Goldy Singh, alias Ninder Singh, for Rs 1000.
