Lashkar Threat To Kishan Reddy: Just Hoax?

Bharatiya Janata Party state unit president G Kishan Reddy created a sensation of sorts on Sunday when he claimed that he had received a threatening letter from Lashkar-e-Tayyeba, Pakistan-based terrorist organisation.

Kishan Reddy told the media that the letter, purported to have been written by a Lashkar activist, claiming that it was responsible for the twin blasts at Dilsukhnagar on Thursday last.

“The Lashkar-e-Tayyeba also claimed that its next target would be Begumbazar. I lodged a complaint with Saifabad police station and handed over the letter to the police,” he said.

One does not know whether the letter was real or the BJP leader wanted to sensationalise it. In any case, the police have registered the case.

“I am also not convinced about the authenticity of the letter, but to be on the safe side, I gave it to the police,” Kishan Reddy said.
