A complaint was lodged at the New Market police station here on Sunday, saying that Union Minister of State Anantkumar Hegde had received a death threat.

The complaint has been filed by the minister's personal assistant Suresh Shetty as per the minister's direction.

It is said that the internet call was made to the minister's mobile phone at around 2 am on Sunday. Since the minister did not receive the call, another call was made to the landline number of the minister's house from a different number. 

When the minister's wife Roopa received the call, the caller disconnected, only to make the call again.

This time, when Hegde himself received the call, the voice on the other side asked whether it was the minister. Hegde replied in the affirmative. 

"What do you think of yourself? Are you a big leader? We will cut off your head and severe your body into pieces," the caller said, read the complaint filed by Shetty.
