“The letter was found by Saraswat’s assistant Jitendra Prasad and he informed lawyer about it immediately. But since he (Saraswat) was out of India, he informed the police commissioner about the matter. After this, an FIR was filed on Wednesday,” Mahamandir SHO Lekh Raj Sihag said.

“We are probing the authenticity of the letter and have provided security to Saraswat in view of the threat,” Sihag said.
