Police nab man accused of issuing threat on CM’s phone
Haridwar police have apprehended a person who is accused of making a call on the chief minister’s mobile phone and threatening to detonate an explosive at Har ki Paidi in Haridwar. He was reportedly frustrated by the delay in getting his Aadhaar card made and was also tense due to family issues.
A call was made to the chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat’s mobile phone on Sunday evening from an unknown number. The phone was being carried by the CM’s protocol officer Anand Singh Rawat. The caller threatened to detonate a bomb at Har ki Paidi. Following a complaint by the protocol officer, the police investigated the case. They nabbed a suspect identified as Pauri native Keshavanand Naudiyal who works in Haridwar. He revealed that he was angry at the authorities due to the delay in getting his Aadhaar card made. The police ascertained that earlier during 2016, he had phoned the police and threatened to harm the chief minister. He had been arrested later and spent a year in jail.
According to the police, the family of the accused live in Pauri and he is also under stress due to some domestic issues. Considering him to be mentally disturbed, the police decided to serve a notice to him under CrPC and facilitate counseling for him.
