Security has been beefed up at Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray's residence, Matoshree, after anonymous international calls were received on Saturday night, according to the Mumbai police.
Security at Uddhav Thackeray's residence 'Matoshree' scaled up after 'Dawood's gang member' makes threat calls
Maharashtra Transport Minister Anil Parab said an anonymous call was received on the landline phone and the person who was speaking claimed that he is a member of the Dawood gang.
The meeting assumed importance as the government revoked its order to transfer 10 DCPs that once again triggered talks about lack of coordination between Shiv Sena and NCP.
Police personnel deployed at the bungalow will be quarantined and replaced as a precautionary measure, Maharashtra Home Minister Deshmukh said.
Sources close to Thackeray said the chief minister has decided to use the official bungalow for his meetings with bureaucrats and political leaders only.
