Filmmaker and Sridevi’s husband Boney Kapoor received death threats for extortion recently. The call was made from an ISD number and it is highly speculated that the caller might be the underworld goon Ravi Pujari. Boney Kapoor lodged a complaint with the Oshiwara police station and and the investigation is on.
A year back, Boney Kapoor’s house was robbed where valuable worth Rs 6 crore were stolen. In this case, two persons were arrested by police.
And now the producer started getting death threats. However, police felt that there is a connection between the robbery and the extortion calls. They are doubting that those two persons are related to underworld goon Ravi Pujari. Apparently, an unidentified person called up Boney and threatened to shoot him down in his house. “You got my men arrested and now you have to face the consequences,” he was told.
Confirming the incident, senior inspector Nasir Pathan said: “The investigation is on and the anti-extortion cell is also conducting a parallel inquiry.”
Meanwhile, the cops are on a vigilant and patrolling is carried out in the area.
