NEW DELHI: A 28-year-old man who allegedly sent death threats by email to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has been arrested in Mumbai, police said on Friday.

According to the police, the accused, identified as Abhishek Tiwari, who works as a delivery boy with a furniture firm in Mumbai, was not satisfied with his job and his life and wanted to do something big to draw the attention of people.

Tiwari had also sent a bomb threat by email to a national political party’s headquarters in the capital.

Tiwari, a school dropout from Unnao, had been living in Mumbai since 2016. He came up with the idea of sending threatening emails to political leaders in July, said Anyesh Roy, Deputy Commissioner of Police, Cybercrime Unit of Special Cell.

“The first such mail that was sent by him was about a local municipal office-bearer of a major political party in Mumbai. Disappointed with the lukewarm response, he upped the ante and decided to send threat mails to senior political leaders,” said Roy. Tiwari sent threatening mails to the Delhi chief minister, Roy said.

Three police teams were formed for arresting the accused. Based on technical analysis of inputs collected regarding the origin of an e-mail, connected mobile phone and IP logs, teams were rushed to Mumbai and Kanpur in Uttar Pradesh. With a deep analysis of technical inputs, his location was traced to Nala Sopara, Mumbai. The police searched through hundreds of chawls until the accused was nabbed from one.
