Threat to Ambani's life even as Jio rolls out 5G: Suspect arrested

The threat calls coincided with Reliance Jio launching a trial beta version of 5G services for selected Jio users in Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata and Varanasi on Wednesday. The arrest was made after a joint operation by the Mumbai and Bihar police. The accused, said to be unemployed, has been identified as one Rakesh Kumar Mishra. He is being taken back to Mumbai.

On Wednesday, the Reliance Foundation hospital received two calls in a span of five hours threatening to blow up the hospital. Threat calls were also made to members of the Ambani family. Ambani was given Z security last week.

MUMBAI, Oct 6: A man from Darbhanga has been arrested for making calls to Mukesh Ambani and his family threatening their life. The caller had also threatened to blow up Sir HN Reliance Foundation Hospital in Mumbai.

The threat calls coincided with Reliance Jio launching a trial beta version of 5G services for selected Jio users in Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata and Varanasi on Wednesday. Reliance is offering unlimited 5G data with up to 1Gbps speed.

Ambani had told the India Mobile Congress (IMC) conference in New Delhi last Saturday, "Today, I want to reiterate Jio's commitment to deliver 5G to every town, every taluka and every tehsil of our country by December 2023."

The Reliance Chairman had told the company's annual shareholder meeting in August that Jio would launch 5G in four cities of Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai and Kolkata by Diwali.

Jio had entered the telecom business in September 2016 by offering free voice calls and cheap data, disrupting the existing telecom companies' customer base.

Accused arrested from Darbhanga

The arrest was made after a joint operation by the Mumbai and Bihar police. The accused, said to be unemployed, has been identified as one Rakesh Kumar Mishra. He is being taken back to Mumbai.

On Wednesday, the Reliance Foundation hospital received two calls in a span of five hours threatening to blow up the hospital. Threat calls were also made to members of the Ambani family.

"Within a few hours, with the help of Bihar police, one accused has been nabbed from Darbhanga in Bihar & the team of Mumbai police is returning to Mumbai along with the accused. Further investigation is underway," DCP Nilotpal was quoted by ANI as saying.

"At 12.45 pm today and again at 5.04 pm a call was received at a call centre of Sir HN Reliance Foundation Hospital threatening to blow up the hospital & threatening to take the lives of Mukesh Ambani, Nita Ambani, Akash Ambani and Anant Ambani," the RIL said in a statement.

"Acting swiftly in the incident of threat calls to Ambani family, a team of Mumbai Police detained a person from a block in Darbhanga, Bihar at midnight with help of Bihar Police. Team is on the way back to Mumbai along with the accused. Further investigation is being done in this matter," the police said in a statement.

In August this year, a jeweller called up the hospital and threatened to kill Ambani and his family members. He was arrested. In February last year, an explosives-laden SUV was found near Ambani's residence 'Antilia'. The case is going on.

On September 29, the Home Ministry upgraded the security cover of Mukesh Ambani to ‘Z +’ category based on intelligence inputs.
