NEW DELHI -- A threat letter was received by former JNU students union joint secretary and ABVP member Saurabh Sharma on Thursday, warning him over the missing varsity student.

The letter was delivered to Sharma at his room in Jhelum Boys Hostel of Jawaharlal Nehru University, which threatened him to 'cut into pieces'.

"I got the letter today morning, which cited incidents in West Bengal and asked me how dare I touched a Muslim boy. It also said that irrespective of whether Najeeb returns or not, I will be cut into pieces," Sharma said, adding that this is not the first threatening letter he received.

"I have received many such letters post the February 9 incident. But I will keep standing upto to my nationalistic beliefs come what may."

The letter was sent by one Shahid Khan through Speed Post, whose address was mentioned on the envelop as that of Jahangir Puri along with a mobile number.

"Saurabh Sharma, Hope this letter finds you at least in a condition where you can read. As our boys are already looking for you to cut into pieces. Looks like you haven't taken any lessons from the recent Bengal attacks where our boys are thrashing people of your community into pieces," the letter said.

"How dare you touch a Muslim boy. Najib Ahmed wapas 'mile na mile' but we will find you and burn down the whole ABVP and JNU. Wait till that time comes!," it added.

Sharma, was the complainant of the controversial 9 February event on campus against hanging of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru during which anti-national slogans were allegedly raised.
