The Tamil Nadu police have arrested two people in connection to giving threat call to DMK Minister R Gandhi. The arrest was made on Tuesday, a day after the call was made and based on the complaint from the Minister's aide Rajasekaran.
Gandhi has been serving as the Minister of Handlooms and on Monday, when he was returning to Ranipet by a car, he received a phone call in which the caller introduced him as an advocate. The caller further said that a person from Ranipet bought money from him but failed to return it.
The caller went on to demand the minister to intervene in the matter. It has been reported that the minister disconnected the call. However, within sometime, the same caller dialled to minister Gandhi again and this time, the caller spoke in a tone of threatening the minister.
As the caller gave a threat call to the minister, Gandhi's personal assistant Rajasekaran has lodged a complaint against the caller to the Kaveripakkam police in the Ranipet district. In his complaint, Rajasekaran disclosed the caller's number.
Based on his complaint, the police launched a probe and traced the number. The police filed a case and arrested two people from Chennai - 25-year-old Gokul from Tiruvottiyur and 31-year-old Balaji from Kondithoppu.
