Shukla has confessed to sending e-mails in which he threatened to kill Vishwas, Additional Superintendent of Police (ASP), City, Gyanendra Singh told media.

"I have dedication for Kejriwal and can't tolerate remarks of Vishwas against him. The way in which Vishwas shows his devotion for Lord Ram Chandra during his public address is also intolerable for me that is why I used to send threatening and abusive emails to him," Shukla, according to the police, said.

Shukla was booked on November 18 under relevant sections of IPC and IT Act. He was produced before a local court here on Sunday and was sent to jail, the officer said.
