Umar Khalid Alleges Death Threat


New Delhi: JNU student leader Umar Khalid filed a police complaint alleging he has received a death threat from gangster Ravi Pujari, police said on Saturday.

The plaint comes a day after Dalit youth leader Jignesh Mevani said he had received similar threats from Pujari for the third day on Friday.

Khalid tweeted on Saturday: “Filed a complaint with @DelhiPolice regarding Ravi Pujari’s death threat to Jignesh and me. He said that I am on his HIT LIST!
