NEW DELHI: BJP MP Parvesh Verma, who has created controversy with his remarks over the anti-CAA protest at Shaheen Bagh in Delhi, on Wednesday morning claimed to have received a threat from an unknown caller.

The West Delhi MP posted a screenshot of the phone call that he received at 8.11 am on Twitter.

He said he will lodge a police complaint in this regard.

On Tuesday, Verma raised the spectre of Shaheen Bagh's anti-CAA protesters in their lakhs entering homes to rape and kill women, provoking opposition outrage as the Delhi election chief submitted a report on his remarks to the Election Commission.
