In their formal complaint, the Delhi Police stated that the threats were intended to cause widespread fear and disrupt public order in the nation’s capital, following the receipt of bogus emails from over 200 schools earlier this month. Under IPC sections 505 (2) (statements fostering or encouraging enmity, animosity, or ill-will between classes), 507 (criminal intimidation by anonymous communication), and 120 (B) (penalty of criminal conspiracy), Delhi Police’s Special Cell has filed a formal complaint.
