Audio: ‘Dawood’ calls activist Anjali Damania to drop cases against BJP’s Eknath Khadse

Mumbai: Social activist Anjali Damania today claimed she received a threat call from a Pakistan-based number, asking her to withdraw the cases she has filed against BJP leader Eknath Khadse.

The former Aam Aadmi Party leader said the Truecaller app — which reveals caller identity — showed that the number belongs to “Dawood”.

The activist lodged a complaint with the Vakola police station in suburban Santacruz about the call. Police officials from Vakola later visited her home and recorded her statement, she said.

Damania tweeted that she received the call at 12.33 am, asking her to withdraw all cases against Khadse, from a number prefixed with +92 — the country code of Pakistan. The app flashed “Dawood 2” on the screen, she said in the tweet.
