Congress MP Rahul Gandhi received a death threat on Friday before the Bharat Jodo Yatra could set foot in Madhya Pradesh. 

The threat letter comes a day after the Wayanad MP targeted Veer Savarkar, saying that he helped the British rulers and wrote a mercy petition to them out of fear. Gandhi’s remarks drew sharp criticism and triggered protests.

The letter threatened that there will be bomb blasts across the city, former MP Chief Minister Kamal Nath would be shot down and Rahul Gandhi will be killed as soon as he arrives in the state’s capital city, Indore.

A letter threatening that Rahul Gandhi would be killed was found outside a sweet shop in Indore under Juni police station area. Police are scanning CCTV footage of the area to find the person who left the letter.

The accused in this case may face charges under the NSA.
