Lucknow, Nov 12: India Against Corruption (IAC) activist Kumar Vishwas, a close aide of Arvind Kejriwal, has filed a police complaint late on Sunday, Nov 11 in Uttar Pradesh's Ghaziabad district alleging threats to his life.

According to complaint, a group of youngsters had come to Vishwas' house in Vasundhara, Ghaziabad, around 5.30 pm and told him that they wished to join the anti-graft movement.

"I heard commotion outside my house and when I came out to find out what the issue was, a group of youngsters told me that they wished to join the movement. These guys came in a Skoda car and spoke very roughly to me. The way they spoke to me was certainly hostile and intimidating," Vishwas told IANS Monday.

Roop Kumar Chowdhary, former BJP legislator, and Sanjay Singh, IAC activist, were present at Vishwas' house at the time of the incident.

The youths left after Sanjay Singh asked them to go to their Kaushambi office. Later, Vishwas joined a conversation with a television crew present in his house.

A few minutes later the youths were back but this time they were large in number.

"There were three cars - a Skoda, a Swift and a Honda city, two bearing Uttar Pradesh numbers and one of Delhi," Vishwas said, adding that the whole act appeared to be a threat of sorts.

However, they fled after spotting television crew in this house, he asserted.

On receiving complaint from Vishwas, Indirapuram police station chief Gorakhnath Yadav said that they have received a complaint and they will look into the matter.

According to Vishwas, a few days ago, he had received a threatening call from a Baroda landline number, asking him to mend his ways.
