    Some organization behind threatening emails, well-planned conspiracy: Sources

    According to sources, the investigative agencies suspect that the threatening emails sent to schools may be orchestrated by an organization rather than an individual. The coordinated nature of the threats, with almost identical emails sent to multiple schools simultaneously, suggests a well-planned conspiracy. Moreover, the IP address was traced back to a server located abroad, indicating possible international involvement. Interpol's assistance is being sought to unravel the complexities of this conspiracy.
