Maharashtra Home Minister says there is no threat to IPL matches in Mumbai

For the past few days, some unverified Social media messages that suggested that IPL 2022 was under threat of Terrorist attack in Mumbai and they had gone viral all over internet in no time concerning the Indian public very much. However, Maharashtra Home Minister Dilip Walse-Patil has now quashed and nullified all such claims in the Assembly meeting and he has ensured that no such thing is going to take place and Mumbai is under no immediate terrorist threat.

“There was news in a section of the media about a threat to IPL in Mumbai or someone conducting a recce….There is no threat to the IPL in Mumbai. Nobody conducted recce, there is no threat from anyone. And the police department too has made this clear,” Home Minister Walse-Patil said in the Assembly.

A few days ago, some miscreants had attacked a team bus of Delhi Capitals and although none of the players was on-board, this was a worrying factor and police had to increase protection on the players. The rumours of terror threat rumour increased tenfolds after that.

Mumbai Police is taking full care to ensure that all the Cricketers are safe and protected and the Maharashtra Home Minister has ensured that nothing will go wrong and it was just a false alarm.

The 15th edition of Indian Premier League, i.e, IPL 2022 starts on 26th March.
