Meanwhile, the police are interrogating the accused and trying to find out why he issued the threats. The NCP became aggressive across the State after the death threats were issued to their leader. An NCP delegation led by MP Supriya Sule met the commissioner of police, Mumbai. They demanded action against two Twitter handles, from which the threats were issued. The Mumbai Police swung into action and investigation was started immediately. The police used technical analysis to track the accused.
