A soldier from Kerala was booked in connection with issuing a death threat against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah.
The Military Police have reportedly arrested Mehaboob, a native of Tirurangadi, Malappuram district, after he endorsed a comment, which was posted on his Facebook post, calling for the assassination of Narendra Modi and Amit Shah.
According to the sources, the police have seized seven mobile phones from Mehaboob. The Security Agencies discovered that he has been handling eleven fake social media profiles. He also actively participated in the anti-CAA propaganda unleashed by various Islamist groups.
On a Facebook post by Mehaboob, in which he appealed to his friends who support the Citizenship Amendment Act to unfriend him, a profile named 'Manikkuttan Vavi' commented:"You please shoot Modi and Amit Shah if you get them at close range. We are here to give you a grand welcome!". Mehaboob was seen responding to the despicable death threat against the Prime Minister and the Home Minister, with 'love emoticons'.
