I am here till Shiv Sena is there. When I will not be there, then Sena will turn into Congress’. The moment he (Balasaheb) realises that Sena is becoming Congress, he will dissolve the party. These are the words of Balasaheb Thackeray. So, we have done nothing wrong.”

I apologised, don’t want to pursue matter further: Man who got threat calls over similar post

Only one of the three men from Amravati, who reportedly received threats over their social media posts in support of suspended BJP leader Nupur Sharma, agreed to file a complaint with police against the threat calls. The 40-year-old man, the owner of a mobile phone shop, filed the case in the City Kotwali police station where a non-cognisable complaint was registered on June 28 under Section 507 (criminal intimidation by anonymous communication) against unknown persons.

A chemist from Amravati, 54-year-old Umesh Kolhe, was murdered on June 21, allegedly over a similar social media post. Police said the other two men who received threat calls about their posts didn’t want to register a complaint.

The shop owner, on condition of anonymity, told The Indian Express,” On June 10, I received a post supporting Nupur Sharma on a WhatsApp group called Busyland Parivar (family).” Busyland is a commercial hub near Amravati city. “Around 3.15 pm, I made the post my WhatsApp status by mistake. Within four minutes, I realised it was a bad post, got scared and deleted it,” he added.
