NEW DELHI: Cyber Crime Cell of Special Cell has arrested a Mumbai-based delivery boy for allegedly sending threat mails to senior political party leaders, including Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. According to Cyber Crime Cell, the 28-year-old delivery boy Abhisekh Tiwari "gave life threats" to Kejriwal. Tiwari was arrested from Nala Sopara in Mumbai on Thursday. The accused also allegedly sent a bomb threat mail to the headquarters of a national political party in New Delhi. "Accused works for a furniture foam distributor in Mumbai. A school dropout, he was not satisfied with his job and his life, and wanted to do something big to draw the attention of people. He came up with the idea of sending threat emails to political leaders," Anyesh Roy, DCP cyber cell said.
The first such mail sent by him was to a local municipal office bearer of a major political party in Mumbai, however, he could not get the sort of response he thought he would. Disappointed with the lukewarm response, he upped the ante and decided to send threat mails to senior political leaders, the police said. "First, he sent threatening mails to the CM, Delhi. Ignorant about the fact that police is on his
trail, he sent another threatening mail of an impending bomb blast to a national political party's HQ in New Delhi," the police said.
The suspect, however, had gone underground and was leaving very few digital footprints. With deep analysis of technical inputs, his location was zeroed to Nala Sopara, a densely populated,
low-lying area. The team in Mumbai searched through hundreds of Chawls till the accused was finally nabbed from a Chawl.
