IB to probe into threat calls to Naqvi

The government is learnt to have directed the Intelligence Bureau (IB) to investigate the threat calls received by BJP vice-president Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi.

Naqvi had written to Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde five days ago informing him about the threat calls he had received from international numbers.

The Ministry, apparently, did not respond to his request for a probe into the matter. Shinde, however, is learnt to have directed the IB on Friday to initiate an investigation after he came under fire from BJP leaders for his alleged inaction on the issue.
