All India Anti Terrorist Front (AIATF) Chairman MS Bitta on Monday said he has been receiving threats for having spoken against Afzal Guru, convicted in the Parliament attack case.

Addressing a press conference in Chandigarh, he said he had received threatening calls, SMSes and missed calls from Dubai and Saudi Arabia. Since December 19 he has received 128 such calls from abroad, he said.

"I have never got so many threatening calls though I have been speaking against terrorists for the last about 20 years," he said.

He alleged that Delhi Police have failed to take any action despite his filing four complaints at Preet Vihar and Parliament Street Police Stations.

Bitta said he had not sought any additional security.

He blamed a senior Punjab police officer for having "sown the seeds for revival of terrorism in the state (when the Amarinder Singh-led Congress government was in power."
