Bengaluru: Primary and Secondary Education Minister Tanveer Sait has complained to the police about receiving threatening calls and messages from the past four days from an associate of the underworld don, Ravi Poojary.

Sait complained that the person was demanding him to pay a ransom of Rs.10 crore and threatened to kill Sait if the money was not given.

The minister also wrote to the Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, Home Minister Ramalinga Reddy and other senior police officials about the blackmail and threat. He also demanded for a tight security cover. The complaint has been forwarded to the city cyber police. According to the investigation, the calls and messages are made by an international number.

The minister also revealed that this was not the first time he is receiving threatening calls from Ravi Poojary who is now said to be hiding abroad.

Few years back, former Minister of State for Fisheries, Youth Affairs and Sports Abhayachandra Jain had also received similar threatening calls from Ravi Poojary.

Sait is provided with additional security and his mobile number is answered by his secretaries Ravi Kumar and Feroz. Investigations are in process.
