Chandigarh [India], August 14 (ANI): Special Task Force has arrested six people in connection with the Haryana MLA threat case, according to the police.

Taking cognisance of the matter, the Chief Minister directed the officials to take immediate action.
Khattar said that no one will be allowed to disturb the law and order of the state.
"On the issue of threats to the MLAs, today, after taking information from Home Minister Shri @anilvijminister ji and senior police officers, instructions have been given to take strict action. No one will be allowed to disturb the law and order in the state and those who do so will be dealt with strictly," the Chief Minister tweeted in Hindi.
State home minister Anil Vij, who also attended the meeting, said that the Special Task Force is in contact with the National Agencies on the matter.
"This is a case of another country as the calls that have come are from Dubai and are from the same number as well. For this, our Special Task Force is maintaining contact with our National Agencies. We are trying to find out soon," Vij said. (ANI)
