The Cubbon Park police arrested an MSc student from her residence in K H B Colony in Bijapur for sending threat messages to DCP (Intelligence) V S D’Souza. Later, she was released on bail. Investigations reveled that she committed the act to teach a lesson to her husband, who used to harass her.

Asma (named changed), 22, allegedly used to send threat SMSes to D’Souza, a nodal officer, investigating the exodus of Northeasterns in the city.

Police said the DCP received the first message on August 26 and another on Thursday from phone number 7204713919. He had filed a case with the Cubbon Park police. Investigation revealed that the number was issued in the name of Asma’s husband.

The police first picked him up, who said his wife was using the number. When the police questioned her, she confessed to have sent the messages. “The couple had a dispute and Asma’s husband used to allegedly harass her. Meanwhile, she got the number of the DCP, which was published in media to address the problems of Northeasterns. She thought her husband would be punished if she sent threat messages to the DCP. So, she planned to teach him a lesson,” the police said. She was produced before a magistrate and was later released.
