NEW DELHI: Senior AAP leader Ashish Khetan on Wednesday approached the Supreme Court seeking protection alleging that he has received threats from right-wing organisations.
Khetan's petition is likely to be heard in first week of June.
Khetan, who is the vice-chairman of Delhi dialogues commission, has alleged that he has received several anonymous letters threatening that he will be killed. His plea mentions the name of groups like Abhinav Bharat, Sanatan Sanstha and Hindu Jan Jagran Samiti.
Khetan said he had also complained to the Delhi Police but no action was taken so far.
His petition also stated that Khetan has written to the Union home minister seeking action in the matter. He also said that several journalists, writers and activists have been threatened by the right wing forces and there is urgent need to formulate guidelines with this regard.
Khetan had received a similar threat letter last year.
