Bengaluru: A senior police official received a threat tweet a day after Islamic State (IS) terror group's Mehdi Masroor Biswas was arrested here, the official said Sunday.
The tweet from an unknown Twitter account (abouanfa16) threatened Bengaluru Deputy Commissioner of Police (Crime) Abhishek Goyal of revenge for arresting Mehdi.
"We will not leave our brothers in your hand. Revenge is coming. Wait for our reaction," said the tweet to the @goyal_abhei Twitter account.
Confirming the threat message, Goyal told IANS that he forwarded the tweet to the cyber crimes wing of the crime branch for tracing its origin and the handler behind it.
"I have informed my senior officers about the threat message though I am not giving much importance or taking it seriously," he said.
