The two cadres of the outfit who have been arrested were identified as Boresh Sangma (38), of Bul Awe in Baghmara, and Rankhu Momin (49) of Bolsal Ading, in Baghmara. The duo had even demanded an amount of Rs 50 lakh from the SP, police said.

"They were using only one number and this was being used exclusively for the purpose of sending threat messages. It was a 'blind' case to crack but thankfully the IT team managed to tackle it," said Mishra.
