Kerala Director General of Police Jacob Punnose, and the state assistant director general of police, have received an email threat that there would be explosions in three major cities of Kerala  -- Thiruvananthapuram, Kochi and Kozhikode.

The threat said that for the past several days the state police and the judicial authorities were framing a 'social leader belonging to a particular community,' and if this does not stop, there would be a chain of explosions in the three cities.

The threat also said that several youths belonging to a particular community were also being falsely implicated in the cases, and called upon the high ranking police officials to try and stop this persecution.

The threat email, according to sources in the state police, had been sent from the Middle East.

Police sources told rediff.com that the 'social leader' mentioned in the threat is Abdul Nasser Madani, (People's Democratic Party chief and implicated in the Bengaluru blasts case, 2008) and the youths involved are PDP and Popular Front activists.

State police and central intelligence authorities are not taking the threat lightly.
