What did Rajkumar write in the letter?
Rajkumar said in a letter written to the police- My team was holding a press conference about the film at one place, meanwhile some people from a group tried to stop them. Since then, we have received threats from some unknown people to stop the release of the film. I am feeling insecure and I and my family may face loss in near future. If such people roam freely then there is a danger not only for me and my family but also for the common citizens.
After this, at the end of the letter, Rajkumar has requested Deven Bharti to take care of the safety of him and his family. Please tell that this is not a new thing.
