Thane: A Congress corporator who is one of the accused in the builder Suraj Parmar suicide case has alleged that he received a threat from the fugitive gangster Ravi Pujari.
Congress corporator Vikrant Chavan, who alongwith three others is facing a case of abetment following Parmar's suicide here on October 7, received a threatening call yesterday.

The caller also said that Chavan should call him back. Inspector B M Daima is carrying out further investigation.
