A Gurugram school principal allegedly received a threat call in the name of gangster Lawrence Bishnoi on Friday evening, the police said.
Lawrence Bishnoi, a noted gangster, is currently lodged in Tihar jail. The gangster is on the police radar in connection with the murder of Punjabi singer Sidhu Moosewala.

He told the police that on Friday evening he got a threat call from an unknown number. The person on the call identified himself as a member of the Lawrence Bishnoi gang.
“The unknown caller threatened me, saying that ‘I will abduct you on Monday’ and when I asked him what the matter was, the person on call said, ‘I will tell on Monday’ and disconnected the phone. Then the phone number went unreachable,” Singh told the police.
Soon after the call, the school principal reported the matter to the Farrukhnagar police.
