An FIR has been filed by Delhi Police against Tamil Nadu Minister TM Anbarasan for reportedly issuing threats to Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The Minister sparked debate when a video allegedly showing him making threats against the Prime Minister circulated widely on Wednesday.

A complaint was lodged by a Supreme Court lawyer against the DMK minister, leading to the Delhi Police registering an FIR at the Parliament Street police station. The FIR has been filed under multiple sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), such as 153, 268, 503, 505, and 506.

“The instant complaint is regarding an incident that took place during a public rally/procession held by the Minister of Rural Industries, Cottage Industries, Small Industries, Tamil Nadu Urban Habitat Development Board, Tamil Nadu, T.M. Anbarasan. Anbarasan, a prominent political figure, having following amongst the masses and minister in the Tamil Nadu Cabinet, made a speech at a procession – wherein he openly threatened to cut the Prime Minister of our country, into pieces,” reads the FIR.
