Security has been beefed up at Anu Vijay Township, where the families of Koodankulam Nuclear Power Plant (KKNPP) employees are staying, following a threat letter received at the plant.

“You are working at the KKNPP, you have two or three-tier security system. But your wife and family members are not having any security. They could be abducted and immersed in the sea,” says the letter addressed to the chief officer of the KKNPP.

At the end of the letter it was stated that it was written by People’s Friend (‘Makkalin Nanban’).  “Return to your native country or to your native place. Don’t believe in the words of politicians. They will make you believe and will let you down later,” it adds. The letter, written in Tamil, was posted from Anna Salai in Chennai on December 31, and the KKNPP officials received it on January 3.

The Koodankulam police have registered a case and are investigating following a complaint from Marshal Joe, Asst Human Resource Manager at the KKNNP. The SP Vijeyandra Bidari said that they have started an investigation.
