Mumbai, Jan 30: Raju Shrivastav, an Indian stand-up comedian received about ten threat calls reportedly from Pakistan, confirmed his manager. He received calls reportedly from underworld don Dawood Ibrahim warning not to crack jokes on Dawood and Pakistan during his shows.
Rajesh Sharma, the business manager of Shrivastav said, "The person warned Raju over phone that he would lose his life if he continues to crack jokes against Dawood Ibrahim and Pakistan."
"Initially we thought they were just prank calls, but since last 25 days about 10 threatening calls have been received. Crime Branch officials seem to have tapped the calls and they themselves approached us and provided security to Shrivastav," Sharma added.
So far no complaint has been registered so far. But police sources said that an additional security has been provided to Raju. He resides at Oshiwara in suburban Andheri.
