IM threatens RIL chief on investment in Gujarat

An anonymous letter purportedly signed by terror outfit Indian Mujahideen, delivered to Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) chairman Mukesh Ambani last week, has created flutter among the police, as it contained a threat to attack the industrialist’s property if he fails to stop investing in Gujarat.

Investigators are now scanning the CCTV footage of the region beside the Reliance Industries Ltd office in Maker Chambers in south Mumbai to ascertain the identity of the person who hand-delivered the letter to a guard on Saturday last.

Despite being considered a hoax, the letter warning the RIL chairman of dire
consequences, “if he continues to support Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi by investing in the state,” has nonetheless been taken seriously by the police.

According to police officials, the letter claiming to be from an IM operative, threatens to attack Mukesh’s 27-storey mansion “Antila” on

Altamount Road, if the RIL chairman fails to pay heed to the warnings.

The letter also asked the industrialist to use his clout to get IM operative Danish freed.
Police officials feel that the letter probably refers to one Mohammed Danish Ansari, arrested in January by National Investigation Agency for allegedly providing shelter to suspected

terrorist-master minds Bhatkal brothers, before they escaped to Pakistan.
