Verma had filed a writ complaint with Delhi Police, requesting them to enhance his police protection following a death threat e-mail. The email stated that Verma should drop the idea of “deshbhakti (patriotism)” and discontinue with the polygraph (lie detector) test as a witness against Tytler, failing which he would face death.1984 riots“This is a very serious matter and considering the gravity of the case in which I am a witness and the profile of the accused (Jagdish Tytler) and his underworld connections, it is requested that immediately an FIR be registered in this matter for further investigations and arrest of the accused Jagdish Tytler and his henchmen, who have been continuously threatening me since the day I turned a witness against Tytler,” the complaint letter stated.
