After the arrest of five accused of the Bhima-Koreagam violence, a prosecutor today revealed that the Pune Police has seized a letter in which it has been said that fate of another incident like the Rajiv Gandhi assassination can take place. The letter has suggested targeting PM Modi’s roadshow and a plan to kill him.
Public prosecutor Ujjwala Pawar, seeking the police custody of five accused arrested, told the court that this letter was found from a laptop of a man named Rana Jacob. In the letter, suggestions for concrete steps were taken to eliminate Modi-Raj.
It was written in the letter that we are contemplating the event of Rajiv Gandhi. Pune Police has also seized Pen-Drive, Hard Disk and some other documents from the accused’s house.

The letter found in Rona Wilson’s house in Delhi refers to the requirement of Rs 8 crore to procure M-4 rifle and four lakh rounds, and also mentions“another Rajiv Gandhi-type incident”.
“It sounds suicidal and there is a good chance we might fail but we feel the party must deliberate over our proposal,” it goes on to state.
A copy of the letter, released by ANI news agency, says: “…in spite of big defeats like Bihar and West Bengal, Modi has successfully established BJP governments in more than 15 states. If this pace continues then it would mean immense trouble for the party on all fronts…Col Kisan and a few other senior comrades have proposed concrete steps to end the Modi-era.”
Ravindra Kadam further said that the documents seized from the accused, clearly show that they are related to any kind of violence in some way.
