A man from Bihar’s Samastipur district was arrested by Bengaluru police on Wednesday for sending a threatening email to the National Investigation Agency (NIA) office in the Karnataka capital.


The investigation uncovered that the accused had developed a friendship with a married woman from Bengaluru, engaging in chats over the past few months. When the woman’s husband discovered this, he strongly urged her to sever ties with her phone friend.

The youth was angry with her friend’s husband and hence, sent a threatening email to NIA office in Bengaluru, in the husband’s name, to frame him and also mentioned his phone number.

Since the matter was serious, the case was transferred to the Cyber Cell of Bengaluru police. During investigation, the cyber cell traced the IP address of the server used to send the email to Rosera sub-division in Samastipur.

Accordingly, Bengaluru police took the help of Samastipur police and conducted a raid on the accused’s house on Wednesday and arrested him. It produced the youth in the Samastipur district court for transit remand and took him to Bengaluru for further investigation.
