"We are investigating about all the numbers from which such calls are being made and will take strict action against such callers," DCP (New Delhi) Jatin Narwal said.

A police official said Yechury filed a police complaint mentioning all numbers through which the threats were received from callers who alleged that the Left leader has spoken "wrong" thing about Goddess Durga in Parliament.

The district police is likely to rope in the cyber cell for probing the matter, the official added.

Yechury had on Saturday said that he received several threat calls and text messages.

"What they are saying is all non-sense as I did not say anything of that sort. There is not even one mention of Durga. My speech is on Youtube. This is a deliberate campaign against me," Yechury had said without naming anyone.

Yechury had earlier received similar threats on 15 February in connection with JNU row and a police complaint was
lodged but none of the callers, who made the Internet generated calls, could be traced by the investigators.
