Based on a complaint filed by his son, the police have registered a case against an unidentified person.

The man, who claimed to be a member of a religious outfit, allegedly made phone calls to Azmi, an MLA from Maharashtra, four to five times over the past few days and threatened to kill him, police said.

Acting on the complaint filed by the Maharashtra SP unit chief's son, Farhan Azim, a case was registered under IPC sections dealing with "deliberate and malicious acts intended to outrage religious feelings, intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace" and other relevant provisions on Thursday, a senior police official said.

Farhan, in his complaint, which was also addressed to Mumbai Police Commissioner Dattatray Padsalgikar and Joint Commissioner of Police (law and order) Deven Bharti, alleged that the caller threatened to harm him and his family. Efforts are underway to trace the caller, the police official added.
