New Delhi:¬†An FIR has been lodged with the Special Cell’s IFSO unit against an unknown person, who threatened a Delhi-based lawyer impersonating Delhi Police Commissioner Rakesh Asthana.

A senior police official said that as soon as they received a complaint, they immediately lodged an FIR. The complaint was transferred to the IFSC unit, which lodged the FIR. They formed a team of elite officials to look into the matter.

“On May 21, Advocate Manjeet Singh, the complainant wrote an email to us in this respect. He alleged that someone who was impersonating Delhi Police Commissioner Rakesh Asthana, threatened him of dire consequences.

“The accused threatened that he would implicate Singh in a false case. Singh received a number of such messages on whatsApp and on his SMS after which he decided to lodge a complaint.
