The letter read that a hired killer, who has a "habit of killing noble people," wanted to kill "social worker" Hazare for blood money. Earlier this month, Hazare had received another threat letter that stated he would be "bumped off" if he does not dissociate himself from Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

"The letter mentions name of one Mahadeo Panchal from Latur district and was posted from Osmanabad," Hazare's aide Datta Awari said. "The letter was dated August 7 and is mostly written in English," the official said.
The letter warned Hazare that he will meet the fate of rationalist Narendra Dabholkar, who was killed in Pune two years back. The letter also asked the Gandhian to stay in his native Ralegan Siddhi village, police said.
