The Delhi Commission for Women wrote to the Cyber Cell of the Delhi Police’s Crime branch asking for a report on death threats and threats to kidnap made to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's daughter.

The Chief Minister’s Office received an anonymous email that threatened of kidnapping his daughter, sources said Saturday, 12 January.

They said the Chief Minister's Office received an anonymous mail on 9 January, following which the mail was forwarded to Delhi Police Commissioner Amulya Patnaik.
