Mr Sharma, who gained nation wide popularity with reality TV show Aap Ki Adalat, received threatening calls and messages at least from 35 different mobile numbers. Mr Sharma informed about all numbers to the cops.
According to sources in the TV channel, Mr Sharma started getting such threatening calls and messages since he interviewed a self-proclaimed godman who has been accused in many fraud cases.
While stating about the special programme aired in India TV, sources said that Mr Sharma had invited the godman to defend himself while several allegations were raised against him.
"Immediately after the telecast, the chairman and editor-in-chief Rajat Sharma started getting abusive and threatening calls and messages from various phone numbers with callers identifying themselves as devotees of the godman," reads the police complaint.
Police sources informed that Mr Sharma filed a complaint on Jun 26 under Section 66A of the Information Technology Act.
