Kairana again: Farmer gets ‘anonymous’ extortion threat

The farmer, who was provided police security immediately after he got a case lodged, had also received an anonymous call originating from Bihar Tuesday night.

AN anonymous letter demanding an extortion of Rs 4 lakh and issuing life threats to a farmer caused panic in a village in Kairana area of Shamli district Wednesday morning, police said.

The farmer, who was provided police security immediately after he got a case lodged, had also received an anonymous call originating from Bihar Tuesday night. The caller had asking him to share his debit card’s PIN.

The farmer, Mohammad Gaffar (47), called up the police Wednesday morning after some neighbours called him outside and showed him a letter pasted on the boundary wall of his house. In the letter, Gaffar was asked to arrange for Rs 4 lakh and leave it in a bah by a electricity pole outside the village by August 29 or else “get ready to face the consequences”, said SHO of Kairana police station, Ambika Prasad Bharadwaj.

“Gaffar also told us that he had received an anonymous call late Tuesday and the caller was asking for his debit card PIN. As Gaffar did not respond, the call was disconnected. The number was later found switched off. We are collecting details of the number used to call Gaffar,” the SHO added.
