The police had on Friday said that Gaurav Tikait, son of Rakesh Tikait's brother and BKU president Naresh Tikait, had filed a complaint that he had received a phone call from an unidentified person who threatened to target Rakesh Tikait and his family members with a bomb if he does not stay away from farmer agitations.

The police had registered a case against the caller under sections 507 and 506 of the Indian Penal Code for the offence of criminal intimidation and started an investigation.
