NIA receives a threatening email to kill Prime Minister Narendra Modi

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on October 5 received a terror email in which the sender threatened to assassinate Prime Minister (PM) Narendra Modi and blow up the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, where several ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 matches are scheduled to take place at the stadium. The sender demanded that the Indian government pay INR 500 crore and release the notorious gangster, Lawrence Bishnoi. This threat has raised security concerns, especially in light of a recent similar threat issued by the Khalistani terrorist outfit Sikhs For Justice (SFJ). The police are currently working to determine if the email is connected to SFJ or if it's a hoax, given Bishnoi's recent claims regarding a gangster killing in Canada. Increased security measures are now being implemented in Mumbai, which is set to host World Cup matches.
