AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi allegedly received death threats after meeting the family members of late gangster-politician Mukhtar Ansari earlier this week. He urged the Election Commission of India (ECI) to monitor threatening social media posts in the matter.

In a video on X, the AIMIM president addressed the "evil forces" threatening him, and asserted that he is "not going to go away so easily".

"I'm not some child of a chicken. I won't go away so easily. I won't turn my back, even if your father comes, I will fight him," Owaisi said in a video, addressing the "evil forces" trying to harm him.

Speaking to reporters later, Asaduddin Owaisi said,"The atmosphere created in the country is giving them (threatening posts) strength to say such things. We will live as long as it is destined and no one is here to live forever...Those who are openly making such threats, we hope that the Election Commission monitors that and sees."

Meanwhile, Union minister and senior BJP leader Giriraj Singh, meanwhile, took a swipe at Owaisi, saying everyone is "afraid" of the AIMIM president and the threat allegation is only a "political drama".

Notably, Owaisi visited Mukhtar Ansari's residence in Uttar Pradesh's Ghazipur on April 1 to offer condolences to his family after the jailed gangster-politician died of cardiac arrest at a hospital in Banda on March 28. At the time, he said he stands with the late gangster-politician's "family, supporters and loved ones".

Mukhtar Ansari was laid to rest at the Kali Bagh burial ground in Ghazipur on March 30, with his remains being buried near the graves of his parents. Though he died at a hospital of cardiac arrest, his family has claimed the gangster-politician was "given slow poison".

The postmortem report, however, said that Ansari died of cardiac arrest.
