The alleged threat to have a bomb in his house was made in the comments section of the Facebook page of a local news portal.
While making the comment, a person named Pranaash Sandhilya claimed that he is a part of militant organization ULFA. Police are trying to confirm his identity.
“Any such threat against elected representatives will not be acceptable as it jeopardizes democratic politics,” the DGP said.
