Zee News Editor-in-Chief Sudhir Chaudhary was on Monday threatened by a caller from Pakistan to "stop exposing the nefarious design of Islamic jihadists", the channel said in a statement.
According to the statement, the Pakistani man made a WhatsApp call from 92-3338831245 to Chaudhary and threatened him to stop his shows against Jihadi elements in India or else face dire consequences.
In his show Choudhary also shared the audio recordings of the threat call.
The calls were accompanied by threatening WhatsApp messages and images from other Pakistani numbers - 92-3057625175, 92-3479589959 and 92-3338831245, it said.
The statement said that the man who called refused to identify himself despite Chaudhary asking him several times if he was from the ISI. The caller also revealed that he knew about the FIR filed in Kerala against Chaudhry's show and threatened that similar FIRs will be filed in many other places.
Chaudhary has filed complaints against the numbers from which the calls and messages were sent with Delhi Police Commissioner S N Shrivastava and Gautam Budh Nagar Commissioner of Police Alok Singh.
