When asked about the presence of chemicals in the envelope, the DIG said that it will be clear only after the forensic team examines it. Efforts to contact the BJP MP from Bhopal or her aides were not successful.

Meanwhile, a picture of a brown envelope, purportedly with Thakur's address on it, was being circulated on social media with a message that it contained some poisonous chemical which was life threatening.

City Superintendent of Police (CSP) Umesh Tiwari said a case has been registered against an unidentified person on charges of criminal intimidation and voluntarily causing grievous hurt at Kamla Nagar police station and added that the matter is under investigation.
