MUMBAI: Mumbai police probing the threat e-mails received by RIL chairman Mukesh Ambani nabbed two youths from Telangana and Gujarat on Saturday.
The duo had demanded Rs 900 crore from the industrialist in six e-mails sent to him separately over the last eight days. As per the preliminary investigation, the accused do not know each other and they were working independently, officers said.
The threats were sent to the e-mail ID of Ambani’s company in the last eight days threatening to eliminate him if he fails to pay up.
One of the two youths, Ganesh Ramesh Vanrapathi (19) was picked up by the Mumbai police’s crime branch from Warangal in Telangana and another person, identified as Rajveer Jagatsingh Khant (20), was held from Gandhinagar in Gujarat, an officer said. The accused duo was found to be using separate email IDs.
The officer clarified that the accused arrested from Gujarat is identified as Rajveer Khant and not as Shadab Khan as said by a police official earlier in the day. Khant used the e-mail ID in the name of Shadab Khan, as per the investigation.
“Khant was using the email ID: He had sent five e-mails to Ambani demanding Rs 400 crore, whereas Vanrapthi was using the email ID: He had demanded Rs 500 crore in a single mail sent to Ambani,” the police officer added.
An e-mail was received by Ambani’s office on October 27 in which the sender demanded Rs 20 crore stating, “If you do not give us Rs 20 crore, we will kill you, we have the best shooters,” it read.
