Bengaluru: Dinesh Amin Mattu complains of receiving death threat

Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (SP)

Bengaluru, Jan 14: Dinesh Amin Mattu, former media adviser to the then chief minister, Siddaramaiah, and journalist, has filed a complaint in D J Halli police station in the city in which he has said that he has received threat over mobile phone. He said that the caller posed threat to him against delivering lecture at the proposed Billawa-Muslim friendly get-together programme that was planned to be held at Udupi on January 11. The programme has since been postponed.

"Vishwanath Poojary, president of Pune Billawa Sangha, driven by the aim of creating friction in the society on the basis of caste and religion, called me and posed death threat. He also used abusive words against my mother and the mother of former minister Vinay Kumar Sorake. Keeping in mind that I had served as media adviser to Siddaramaiah, he also derided Siddaramaiah by using ugly words," he said in the complaint.

He has urged the police to register case on the base of his complaint under Indian Penal Code sections 153 (A), 295 (A), 504 and 506. He said that the threat he received was in the style of underworld dons.
