SUPREME COURT ON HIGH ALERT AS AN ANONYMOUS EMAIL THREATENS TO BLOW UP THE PREMISES

New Delhi (ANI): Security at the Supreme Court of India has been put on high alert after an anonymous email threatened to blow up the court premises.

The email was reportedly sent last week, following which anti-sabotage checks have been increased.

News agency ANI reports that law interns have been barred from entering court rooms for a month following the security threat. Litigants, too, will not be issued passes for consultation purposes.

Earlier this month, Supreme Court judge Justice Dipak Misra, who handed down the death penalty to 1993 Mumbai serial blasts convict Yakub Memon, received an anonymous threat letter at his residence in Tuglak Road area.

Police sources said that the letter, written in red ink, read, “By hanging Yakub, you did wrong. This will be avenged. We have already come to Delhi. Beef up your security as much as you like.” More details are awaited.
