Police probe 'contract' to kill RBI governor
Security was tightened for RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan following a death threat purportedly from the Islamic State (IS) terror group, an official said on Thursday.
 
The threat, received via an e-mail on Rajan's official ID, came around three weeks ago after which the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) informed the Mumbai Police crime branch.
 
Rajan is out of India, but police are taking no chance and security was tightened at the iconic RBI headquarters here.
 
Efforts are on by the Cyber Cell to track down the e-mail's origin and its credibility.
 
The sender claimed that he had been given a contract to eliminate Rajan, but was open to negotiations on the issue. This has both perplexed police officers and also made them wonder about the genuineness of the threat.

whether genuine or not the Police should know there are plentiful of contract killers all over the country and efforts should be made to know who has sent this email. With difficulty the country is moving towards progress and eyes are watching us with envy.
