"Happy New Year to all" is how India's charismatic cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni greeted his fans on new year.

Sporting a pair of jeans, a T-shirt and a pullover, the wicketkeeper-batsman wished his fans at the airport, many of whom waited for hours to have a glimpse of their hero.

Dhoni's brief stay in his home town was marked by threat letters to his family.

His brother-in-law, Goutam Gupta, drove the car to the airport with the security personnel escorting it. Keeping the security concerns in mind, the police did not disclose Dhoni's destination.

"Dhoni's tour programme was previously planned, but we don't know where he is going," said a senior police in the backdrop of one Taslim's extortion letters sent to Dhoni's family.

After receiving the letters within 48 hours demanding Rs 50 lakh, the Dhonis were relieved to find the postman not bringing any letter this afternoon.

"No, there was no letter today. We think the letters are fake. Still we want to take precaution," said Dhoni's brother-in-law.

For the first time the administration deployed security personnel at Dhoni's residence as per the requirement under 'Z' category security.
