In April this year, the police arrested a man who had written a letter threatening a suicide bomb attack on PM Modi during his visit to Kochi on April 24.

In March this year, a Delhi court convicted a man for misbehaving and taking steps to kill PM Modi. The accused got the benefit of doubt when the court acquitted him.

According to the court, the prosecution failed to prove the allegations beyond reasonable doubt.

The court expressed serious concern over the methodology of the investigation and the absence of public witnesses.
