An unidentified person on Monday made a phone call to a hospital in Mumbai and threatened to kill the family of industrialist Mukesh Ambani, a police official said.
“The person made three to four calls on a landline number of the Reliance Foundation Hospital in Girgaon area around 10.30 am,” he said.
After receiving information about the calls, the Mumbai police initiated a probe into it.
“A preliminary enquiry suggested the caller was mentally unstable,” the official said.
“A process was on to register an FIR in this connection,” he added.
Last year, Mumbai police recovered a threat letter from an abandoned SUV, a few hundred metres away from the residence of the business tycoon. 20 explosive gelatin sticks were also found from the SUV.
The letter written in Hindi was addressed to the Mukesh family. “Yeh toh sirf trailer hai(This is just the trailer),” an excerpt from the letter read. The number plate of the vehicle matched with Ambani’s security details. PTI
