19-Year-Old Sends Death Threats

A teen sent an email to the BCCI threatening to kill players of the Indian cricket team.

In a surprising turn of events, a 19-year-old was arrested by the Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) after he threatened to kill the players of the Indian cricket team. He was identified as Brij Mohan Das, who sent a death threat to the BCCI. Investigators said that he also sent the email to other boards and members.

He was put behind by bars in Assam according to local news. He has also been registered into the matter under sections 506 (II) and 509 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) along with Section 7 of the Criminal Law Amendment Act 1932. After a series of trials, he is to remain under police custody until August 26.

Recently, the PCB received an email which said that the Indian Team is in immediate threat of a terror attack. They forwarded the email to the ICC, as well as to the BCCI. The BCCI then informed the Union Home Ministry about the situation and also alerted the Indian embassy in Antigua, the place for the opening Test. Under extreme circumstances, the security for the national team has been increased after the terror hoax.

This is not the first time that the BCCI has received threats targeted to itself or towards the players. It has received threats before when the IPL was in the middle of its season. To find out more about the IPL, visit Betwala’s page.
