Three days after he was released on bail in connection with a rioting case in Pune, Milind Narvekar, personal secretary of Shiv Sena executive president Uddhav Thackeray, allegedly received a threat call.

Sources in the state home department told the Hindustan Times that Narvekar had approached the police on Monday after he received the anonymous call — the caller threatened him in Marathi — on his mobile phone on Sunday night.  Though sources refused to reveal the exact text, “it appeared as if he [the caller] was jealous of Milind’s growing clout in the party and asked him to slow down… or face consequences”.

The call was made using the Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP) facility, which would render tracing the caller almost impossible for the police.

Only if the country where the server through which the VoIP call had been made is located, will the Mumbai police be able identify the user’s Internet protocol address.

However, the privacy policy in many countries denies any access to anyone’s personal protocol. While the police have refused to comment on the matter, Narvekar said: “I don’t want to comment on anything now.”

The Pune police had arrested Narvekar and Sena spokesperson Neelam Gore on December 28 for inciting riots over the removal of the statue of Dadoji Konddev, Shivaji’s teacher from Lal Mahal, in Kasba Peth.  They were subsequently released on bail on December 31. The police had arrested the duo after recording a telephone conversation in which Narvekar was allegedly heard instructing Gore to incite violence during the bandh.
