Mohammad Rasool, a resident of Rangapet, Yadgiri district, who works as a laborer in Hyderabad on Tuesday threatened to kill Prime Minister Narendra Modi, through a social media post. In the video, he said PM Modi would be killed if Congress came into power at Centre. 

Rasool was seen brandishing a sword in the post, which has initiated a widespread concern and calls for action from authorities. However, he is yet to be arrested by the law enforcement agencies.

Meanwhile, a case has been registered under IPC section 505(1)(b), 25(1)(b), and Arms Act, and the police are searching for the accused. 

Rasool, who seems to be a selfie lover, after looking at his social media account, abused Prime Minister Modi and UP CM Yogi Adityanath in comprehensible words. He also follows the Dawat-o-Tabligh page on his social media handle.
