Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani has received a death threat through e-mail, police said. In the e-mail sent to the ID of Mukesh Ambani's company by an unknown person, it said the billionaire should pay Rs 20 crore or else he would be killed.
"If you don't give us Rs 20 crore, we will kill you. We have the best shooters in India," the e-mail read.
Based on the complaint of Mukesh Ambani's security in-charge, Gamdevi police in Mumbai has registered a case against the unknown person under sections 387 (putting a person in fear of death or of grievous hurt in order to commit extortion) and 506 (2) (criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
Police have launched an investigation into the matter.
This is not the first time that Mukesh Ambani has received death threats.
Last year, a man from Bihar's Darbhanga was arrested for making death threat calls to Mukesh Ambani and his family members. The accused, who is an unemployed man, was identified as Rakesh Kumar Mishra. He had even threatened Mukesh Ambani's family and to blow up the Sir HN Reliance Foundation Hospital in Mumbai.
In 2021, a Scorpio car with 20 explosive gelatin sticks and a threat letter was found outside Mukesh Ambani's south Mumbai residence Antilia. The letter read, "Yeh sirf trailer hai. (This is only a trailer)."
