Reliance Industries chairman Mukesh Ambani received new threat emails, warning him of serious consequences for ignoring previous extortion demand of Rs 400 crore.


As per Mumbai Police, two threatening emails were received between October 31 and November 1. The sender introduced himself as Shadab Khan.


"Industrialist Mukesh Ambani received two threat emails once again between October 31 and November 1, warning him of serious consequences for ignoring previous emails wherein the person (sender of the mail) had demanded Rs 400 crore," Mumbai Police said.


Earlier, Mukesh Ambani received death threats via email threatening to shoot him if he failed to pay Rs 20 crore.

According to the police, the ransom subsequently kept increasing to Rs 200 crore and Rs 400 crore each time a new email was sent.

"The sender cites a lack of response to the previous email and increases the ransom, Mumbai police had said, adding that the first such threatening mail was sent on October 28.

Based on the complaint of Mukesh Ambani's security in-charge, the Gamdevi Police of Mumbai registered a case against an unknown person under section 387 (putting a person in fear of death or of grievous hurt in order to commit extortion) and 506 (2) (criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

More details awaited.
