A plywood trader from Jagraon stated in his complaint that he had received a call from someone a couple of days ago who claimed to be a member of the Goldy Brar gang and threatened to gun down him.
According to the trader, the caller has not demanded money from him, but he and his family members are scared.
A reader with a district administration officer said that he received his picture with a cross marked on it on WhatsApp from an unknown number on Sunday. Later, he received a call from the same number. The caller also claimed to be a member of the same gang and demanded ₹2 lakh.
