Recently, we had reported that filmmaker Boney Kapoor has received extortion threats from someone, who claims to be an associate of absconding gangster Ravi Pujari and now, filmmaker Karan Johar too has received similar threats.
Karan recently received an extortion threat through an SMS from an unknown number. After receiving the threat message, he complained to the Khar police and was provided with armed security. The case has now been transferred to the extortion cell of Mumbai crime branch.
Police suspect a fugitive gangster, who is making phone calls via internet, hence making it difficult for the police to trace him. Boney, who complained to the Oshiwara police, too has been provided security cover.
