Bhubaneswar: The threat letter received by the Governor of Odisha SC Jamir on Monday came from Giridih of Jharkhand in which the senders have identified themselves as Maoists, DGP KB Singh said.

“The incident is taken seriously as it is a matter of security concern. We are in contact with our Jharkhand counterparts. The real senders have not yet been known. We have taken the matter to the notice of Home department and Intelligence Bureau (IB)”, Singh said.

Raj Bhawan received the letter on Monday in a sealed envelope by post from Giridih district in Jharkhand. The letter asked the Governor to relinquish his office within 15 days or face dire consequences.

Similar threat letters were also sent to the neighbouring state's Governor and some government officers recently by the same senders.
