Ten days ago Hazare received another threat letter which stated that he would be "bumped off" if he does not dissociate himself from Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

A case was registered under IPC section 506 (criminal intimidation) at Parner police station in Ahmednagar district, a police official from Parner had said. "The letter was dated August 7 and is mostly written in English," the official said.

The letter warned Hazare that he will meet the fate of rationalist Narendra Dabholkar, who was killed in Pune two years back.

The letter also asked the Gandhian to stay put in his native Ralegan Siddhi village, police said.
