UNNAO BJP MP Sakshi Maharaj has written to Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh requesting an upgradation of his security to ‘Z-category’ citing “threat calls” made to him over the last five days. Sakshi is an accused in Babri Masjid demolition case.

“I received over a dozen threatening calls in the last five days. Callers threatened to kill me and blow up my ashram if I did not stop taking up Hindutva and Ayodhya temple issues. Since I have been a target for terrorists for a long time, I requested Rajnath Singh to upgrade my security. I presently have Y+ category security from the central government,” said Maharaj.

He further said, “I started receiving these calls on November 23. Almost daily I get 2-3 calls from different numbers. Today too I received two such calls. Some of the calls were made from the internet.”  “I got a case registered in Unnao two days ago. On Tuesday, I sent a letter to Delhi police to lodge an FIR in connection with threat calls I received on November 26 and 27,” the MP said. Investigating officer of the Unnao case, sub-inspector Shyam Pal, said, “As per the complaint, the caller identified himself as Ali Akhlauni and claimed to be a member of the D-Company.”
