Karnataka Home Minister, K J George, on Tuesday claimed he had received threatening calls from people claiming to be underworld dons. He was addressing the Legislative Assembly and answering a question raised by Suneel Kumar, a legislator from Karkal constituency.
Kumar had asked the government to look into how many underworld threat calls were reported in Dakshina Kannada and Udupi districts and if any action was taken in the cases.
George said in his reply that no such case was registered in Dakshina Kannada in the past three years. In Udupi, six cases were reported in 2012, nine in 2013 and seven in 2014.
“Police arrested 12 persons in four cases and other cases are in courts. Since we have taken stringent action against underworld dons, some of them threatened me over the phone. I do not care about that. Legal action will be taken against them,” George said.
