Cricketer-turned-Indian parliamentarian Gambhir from the federally ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Wednesday complained to police about getting another death threat from “ISIS Kashmir” (Daesh).
The email – which is the second death threat – was sent from the email ID “email@example.com.” “We intended to kill you, but you survived yesterday,” it reads. “If you love the life of your family, stay away from politics and the Kashmir issue.” The email also included a video shot outside Gambhir’s Delhi residence.
On Tuesday evening, Gambhir received his first death threat from “ISIS Kashmir” and the Delhi Police launched a probe on Wednesday morning. The first email read, “We are going to kill you and your family.”
Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Shweta Chauhan said that the authorities are investigating. “Security has been beefed up outside Gambhir’s residence in Rajendra Nagar,” Chauhan said.
Gambhir is known for his outspoken nature and has often clashed with Pakistani cricketers, including Shahid Afridi, on Twitter over
their views on Kashmir.
Jammu and Kashmir has been disputed between Indian and Pakistan since 1947. While India claims sovereignty over the entire region, it’s currently administered in parts by both countries.
