BHOPAL: The district police in Rewa, Madhya Pradesh, defused an explosive with a timer. A letter threatening Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath was also found near the spot.

The explosive was found planted under a bridge near Mangawan on National Highway-30. Soon after the device was discovered, a bomb disposal squad rushed to the spot and defused it. This was the first such incident reported in Rewa. The police have started investigating the matter.

The threat letter raises fear as Uttar Pradesh heads to polls next month. The legislative assembly elections in UP will be held in seven phases from February 10 onwards. Votes will be counted on March 10. Yogi Adityanath is contesting from Kharagpur in Uttar Pradesh.

The intelligence had received secret inputs about terror attacks being planned around Republic Day. Following the incident, Yogi Adityanath’s security has been increased.
