Media reports on Tuesday claimed Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had received a death threat. Times Now reported the threat stating Adityanath "has only four days left" was received on the emergency WhatsApp number of the Uttar Pradesh Police.
Times Now reported the threat was received on the evening of April 29.
A complaint was registered at the Sushant Golf City police station in Lucknow over the incident, and police have constituted a surveillance team to trace the sender of the threat.
Yogi Adityanath has previously received threats. In April, the CRPF's office in Mumbai received an email that claimed suicide bombers would target Yogi Adityanath and Home Minister Amit Shah. The email also threatened attacks on places of worship and other important installations.
