New Delhi: The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) found itself at the center of a harrowing situation when it received a menacing email containing threats of bomb attacks. The ominous communication specifically targeted not only the RBI but also HDFC Bank and ICICI Bank. The sender, in a brazen display of audacity, demanded the immediate resignations of RBI Governor Shaktikanta Das and Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman. The gravity of the situation escalated as the email detailed plans to plant explosives in the offices of these financial institutions.
In a chilling turn of events, a total of 11 bomb threats were communicated, each pinpointing different locations across Mumbai. The targets included not only the aforementioned banks but also several undisclosed locations. The Mumbai Police swiftly sprang into action, responding to the imminent threats with a comprehensive investigation.
Law enforcement agencies diligently visited all 11 locations specified in the threatening emails. Despite the intensity of the situation and the palpable tension in the air, the searches yielded no evidence of explosive devices. The thorough efforts of the police, coupled with their ability to maintain composure in the face of such threats, ensured that public safety remained the top priority.
Undeterred by the absence of physical threats at the specified locations, the Mumbai Police promptly registered a case related to the bomb threats. The investigative process is now in full swing as authorities are determined to trace the origin of the threatening emails and apprehend those responsible for instigating fear and chaos.
The incident serves as a stark reminder of the challenges faced by financial institutions and regulatory bodies in ensuring the security of their operations.
