'Dawood' calls Anjali Damania: 'Drop cases against Eknath Khadse'

'Dawood' calls Anjali Damania: 'Drop cases against Eknath Khadse'”

Activist Anjali Damania filed a complaint on Saturday after she received a threat call late in the night from a Pakistan-based number identified as Dawood 2 on Truecaller app, asking her to withdraw all cases she had filed against senior BJP leader Eknath Khadse. The person, she said, threatened her not to take up the case against BJP leader Eknath Khadse.

The activist believes that the number belongs to gangster Dawood Ibrahim.

A complaint has been registered and Joint CP Crime is investigating the matter.

Damania also appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Rajnath Singh to give her time to urgently see them. "I want my Govt to act", she wrote.

Earlier in September, the Vakola Police had booked Khadse for allegedly making "obscene' remarks" against Damania in a speech at a public function. In her statement to the police, Damania alleged that Khadse passed objectionable comment about her. Damania also informed that she would be taking a press conference on the incident at the Mumbai Marathi Patrakar Sangh today.

The Bombay High Court had recently asked the Maharashtra government to inform it in the next three weeks what steps it has taken in the last 10 months against Khadse, against whom corruption allegations were levelled by Damania. "What is more important is that the state has totally failed to provide safety to activists and journalists and we fear for the safety of Anjali Damania and her family", Menon said.

Even AAP condemned the threat to Damania and called for the investigation to be handed to a specialised agency.
