'Will behead you, chop you into pieces': Union minister Anant Hegde receives threat call

  Union minister and Uttara Kannada MP Anantkumar Hegde allegedly received a threat call on his landline during wee hours of Sunday.

Reportedly, the caller first called at 2 am on the minister's personal number and then twice on the landline before it was answered by Hegde himself.

The first call on the landline was answered by Anantkumar Hegde's wife- who said that the caller was speaking in Hindi and after enquiring about her, disconnected the line.

It was the third time when the phone rang that the Uttara Kannada MP Hegde answered the phone.

The caller then threatened to kill Hegde and said, "You think you're a big leader? We will behead you. We'll chop your body into pieces."

A complaint has been filed by Anantkumar Hegde's personal assistant Suresh Govind Shetty at Sirsi police station.
