Home Minister RR Patil on Tuesday said the police had received anonymous calls regarding the Kurla rape and murder cases but such calls were a common occurrence. He was questioned whether the alleged murderer had called the police to warn them about a similar murder in the future.
“The police is not dependent on such calls for investigations or leads. As far as the Kurla case goes, there are many police teams out there hunting for the culprit,” said Patil.
He downplayed the anonymous caller theory. Replying to a query, he said it was the job of the police to trace such calls and often they were made from local PCOs.
“We are on an alert. The government has taken notice of the serious sentiment of the locals here,” he added. The police control room received the last of such calls on Thursday. The caller is yet to be traced.
