THE POLICE have finally agreed to provide security to film financer Prakash Jaju, who has alleged that he has been receiving threatening calls from underworld don Chhota Shakeel.
Mhow SDO (Police) Harinarayan Mishra told Hindustan Times today that the security cover would only be within boundaries of the State. The issue of security had been hanging fire and the catalyst for the decision was another threat that Jaju allegedly received while travelling from Indore to Mhow last evening.
When he goes to Mumbai, Madhya Pradesh police would provide security to up to the border of Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra. Responsibility of security beyond that point would rest with Maharashtra police. However, Jaju said that real need of security was in Mumbai, not in Mhow or Indore. He said Indore SP Adarsh Katiyar and he were trying to get security from Maharashtra police and the matter would be cleared within a couple of days.
On cancellation of his bail plea, he said he had to appear in person in Mumbai court to secure bail, but he was unable to go due to the threats. He told Hindustan Times that he was facing heavy losses since he was unable to be in Mumbai and the artists he assists were also suffering due to his absence.
Regarding, any trace of numbers from which threatening calls were being made on Jaju’s mobile phone, Mishra said he had consulted senior cyber crime expert A K Dohre, who is IG (Police). According to Dohre, there are two reasons due to which the numbers are not displayed on the screen of the one who has received the call.
He said if the call is made through some router-like system and is not done directly, the number does not show on he receivers screen.
Another reason was the prevalence of telephone numbers with more than 10 digits. In this case, the actual number is not flashed on the screen and only symbolic numbers are displayed.
This happens because there is a ten-digit number system in India and our caller ID system doesn’t read more than 10 digits, Dohre said.
