City police have registered an FIR and begun investigation following a complaint from the wife of Dr SD Subbiah, the neurosurgeon who was murdered in Abhiramapuram in 2013, received threat calls from different mobile phone numbers.
Shanthi is also the mother-in-law of IPS officer DIG V Balakrishnan.
“She had been receiving such calls on a regular basis. These calls come during nights. Sometimes they are just blank calls. She is depressed because of the calls, even as her husband’s murder case is going on in the court,” a member of her family said. She received a series of threat calls, some of them internet based, on August 20 night.
Following this, she has asked the police to take appropriate action and also provide protection for her.
It may be recalled that Dr Subbiah was murdered in connection with a dispute over property in his native, and the police had made series of arrests.
