A day after JNU student leader Umar Khalid was shot at, student activist Shehla Rashid Shora filed an FIR with the Jammu and Kashmir police in Srinagar against mafia don Ravi Poojary for allegedly threatening her.
Rashid said that Poojary had threatened to silence herself, Umar Khalid, and Dalit leader Jignesh Mevani "forever", and provided evidence for her allegations.
Here are the details.
Ravi Poojary had made similar threats earlier
Rashid tweeted the SMS-ed death threat. "Just shut your mouth or we will shut your mouth forever," Poojary's SMS read.
Notably, this is the same Ravi Poojary against whom Umar Khalid had lodged a police complaint in June.
"He said that I am on his HIT LIST!," Khalid had tweeted, and said that Poojary had made similar threats in February 2016 too.
