As per an Indian media outlet News 18, Delhi police said that the emails were generated in Karachi, Pakistan. They were created by a young man named Shaheed Hamid, about 20-25 years of age. He is a student at Sindh University in Karachi.


A second mail included an attachment of a video shot outside Gambhir’s family home. “We intended to kill you, but you survived yesterday. If you love the life of your family, stay away from politics and the Kashmir issue,” it said.

Police sources said they haven’t found any major motive behind the threats.

The video sent was from YouTube, possibly uploaded by a Gambhir supporter in November 2020, they revealed.
