Panaji, Jan 19 (IANS) The Goa Police have begun investigating a letter, with IS scribbled on it, which has threatened Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar for allegedly pursuing anti-beef policies.

Inspector General of Police V. Renganathan confirmed the contents of the letter, which he said was written in English, saying the postcard containing the threats to the two political leaders was posted locally.

“Since you are not allowing to eat beef, you will be taken care of,” the postcard said while referring to Modi and Parrikar. The letter was signed with the word IS.

The letter, received at the state secretariat here on Thursday, was later handed over to the Anti-Terror Squad and the North Goa district police.

Police sources said Parrikar’s security was reviewed in view of the threat letter.
