An anonymous letter purportedly signed by ISIS has threatened to kill Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar.

Goa Police have circulated this letter to all the police stations in the state and handed over the case to the Anti Terrorist Squad (ATS).

The postcard threat letter was received at the State Secretariat last week following which Goa Police swung into action, a senior police official said on Tuesday.

“All the agencies of state police are investigating this letter. We will soon be able to find the source of it,” the police official said.

“ISIS was written at the bottom of the postcard,” the official confirmed.

The letter has expressed anger over ban on cow slaughter in the country.

“Since you are not allowing to eat beef, you will be taken care of,” the postcard said while referring to Modi and Parrikar.
