Zee News’ Sudhir Chaudhary gets threat call from Pakistan

The calls were accompanied by threatening messages and images

MUMBAI: Zee News editor-in-chief Sudhir Chaudhary has received a threat call from Pakistan to stop exposing the nefarious design of 'Islamic Jihadists’, IANS reported quoting channel’s statement.

Says a Zee News official statement: “A Pakistani man made a WhatsApp call from 92-3338831245 to Chaudhary and threatened him to stop his shows against Jihadi elements in India or else face dire consequences. The calls were accompanied by threatening WhatsApp messages and images from other Pakistani numbers - 92-3057625175, 92-3479589959 and 92-3338831245.”

The statement further reads that the caller refused to identify himself despite Chaudhary asking him several times if he was from the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI).

The caller also revealed that he knew about the FIR filed in Kerala against Chaudhry's show and threatened that similar FIRs will be filed in many other places, reports IANS.

Chaudhary hosts a prime-time show called Daily News Analysis (DNA), during which he analyses a news topic that has been buzzing through the day. On 11 March, the TV anchor ran a show explaining the types of 'jihads' in the Muslim community, which is the likely cause behind the FIR.

In this regard, Chaudhary has filed complaint with Delhi Police Commissioner SN Shrivastava and Gautam Budh Nagar Commissioner of Police Alok Singh.
