A man was held from Jammu and Kashmir for allegedly issuing death and sexual threats to a 15-year-old girl from Mumbai after she posted a video expressing her views on the June 28 killing of tailor Kanhaiya Lal in Udaipur in Rajasthan.
Fayyaz Ahmed Bhatt (30) was held on Sunday from Badgam with the help of police, an official of Mumbai Police said.
“The girl received calls and Whatsapp messages containing death and sexual threats from three numbers on July 1, after which her parents lodged a complaint the next day,” he said.
A special team of Mumbai police nabbed Bhatt and charged him under provisions of the Indian Penal Code and the Information Technology Act.
He has been remanded in police custody for three days and a further probe was underway.
Kanhaiya Lal was killed with a cleaver inside his tailoring shop on June 28 by two persons who claimed they were avenging an insult to Islam.
