Mumbai: Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis today gave nod to enhance the security of social activist Anna Hazare to Z+ category following the second death threat letter received by the anti corruption crusader in 10 days.
Hazare's close aide Datta Awari said that the letter mentions name of one Mahadeo Panchal from Latur district and was posted from Osmanabad.
Following this, the veteran social activist filed a police complaint.
A case was registered under IPC section 506 (criminal intimidation) at Parner police station in Ahmednagar district, a police official from Parner had said.
"The letter was dated August 7 and is mostly written in English," the official said.

Ten days ago Hazare received another threat letter which stated that he would be bumped off if he does not dissociate himself from Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.
