The traffic control room of Mumbai Police has received a call from an unidentified person warning of a 26/11-like terror attack if Pakistani woman Seema Haider did not return to her country, an official told news agency PTI.


The call was received on July 12, the official told PTI on Friday.


The caller, who spoke in Urdu, said there would be a terror attack, like the one that took place on November 26, 2008, in Mumbai and that the Uttar Pradesh government will be responsible for it, the police official said, reported PTI.


Mumbai Police is investigating the threat call and a crime branch team has also been roped in, he said.
The call was made through an app, and the police were trying to track down the IP address of the caller, the official said.

According to PTI, Seema Haider, a Pakistani national, recently entered India illegally to marry her lover Sachin Meena, a resident of Greater Noida. The two had become friends while playing online game PUBG.

The Pakistani woman, around 30, and her Indian partner, around 25, were arrested by the police in connection with her illegal stay in India, but were granted bail by a court in Uttar Pradesh's Greater Noida last week.

On July 4, both Sachin and Seema confessed their love for each other in front of the media and police, urging the government to allow them to get married and stay together in India.

Earlier in February this year, National Investigation Agency's (NIA) Mumbai office had received a mail from an unidentified individual claiming to be a Talibani member threatening to carry out a terror attack in Mumbai.

The email claimed that a person linked to the Taliban would carry out the attack in Mumbai, as reported by PTI.

Following the threat, the city police and the Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) were alerted.

According to the police, the email address used to send the threat message had "CIA" in it and the sender claimed that a person having links with the Taliban would carry out an attack in the city.

The IP (internet protocol) address of the sender has been traced to Pakistan, said a police official.

An investigation into the matter has been launched. However, police suspect it might be a mischief, as such emails were sent to the probe agency earlier as well.

The federal agency got a similar email last month. The police conducted a probe and did not find any substance in it, reported PTI
