THANE: Senior Shiv Sena leader Eknath Shinde allegedly received a death threat on his cell phone following which security has been stepped up at his Maharashtra residence.

A police officer in the Thane Commissionerate on the condition of anonymity told PTI that police has provided extra security to his family at his house in Wagle Estate locality in view of the death threat issued to him.
