Mumbai, Feb 8 (UNI) Samajwadi Party general secretary Amar Singh has warned the Maharashtra Government that his party would ''gherao'' Mumbai police commissioner D N Jadhav if it failed to take action against his complaint that he had received a death threat.
Mr Singh told reporters here today that state deputy chief minister R R Patil had assured him yesterday that action on the complaint would be taken within a week.
He alleged that the anonymous caller had threatened him that he would meet the same fate as a businessman named Ramesh Kini had met.
Kini, a local businessman, was done to death in 1996 and his body was found in a theatre in Pune. Mr Raj Thackeray's name had figured during the investigations.
The SP General Secretary said he had mentioned about this 'threat' in the FIR that he lodged against the MNS workers as well as to Mr Patil during his meeting with him yesterday. However, he was not sure where it had found mention in the FIR as it was written in Marathi.
Mr Singh said he recieved the call over his mobile when he was his way to address the media at the Murathi Patrakar Sangh last week.
He said if there was no action, he would himself lead the ''gherao'' agitation against the police commissioner who, incidentally, had invited him (Mr Singh) for his daughter's wedding a few days back.
