Chennai: Retired police officer who commented on convict Rajiv Gandhi allegedly threatened | Chennai News | News Bharat

CHENNAI: Retired Additional Superintendent of Police, Anushya Daisy Ernest complained to the city’s police commissioner Shankar Jiwal that some miscreants threatened her for making critical comments about the seven convicts in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case who were released from prison on Supreme Court direction.
The officer was injured when former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi was assassinated near Sriperumbudur on May 21, 1991. After retirement, Anushya joined Congress. After the convicts were released, she made comments condemning their release. Since then, she said, she has received several threatening messages on her mobile number.
Anushya said that she had been receiving obscene voice messages on her WhatsApp number and told reporters that she had sought police protection as she feared for her life.
According to her complaint, some of the threatening messages came from foreign numbers and threatened to kill her if she gave an interview about Nalini’s release. She alleged that Naam Tamilar Katchi (NTK) workers could be behind such messages.
“I have sent the WhatsApp voice messages and the associated numbers to the police commissioner. He has promised to take appropriate action based on the complaint,” said Anushya.
