The caller also threatened to blow up Sir HN Reliance Hospital.
A case against the unknown caller has been registered at DB Marg Police Station.
A call was received on the landline number of Sir HN Reliance Foundation Hospital at 12.57 pm on October 5 from an unknown number in which the caller issued life threat to Mukesh Ambani, Nita Ambani, Akash Ambani and Anant Ambani.
The caller also threatened to blow up the Reliance HN Hospital. An offence in this incident has been registered at DB Marg Police Station and further investigation in this matter is being done by Mumbai Police. Police sources said that the caller will be traced soon.
The Mumbai police will address a press conference today with regards to the threat call. We have tightened security at HN Reliance hospital and Mukesh Ambani's residence, Antilia, police said.
Mymbai Zone 2 DCP Nilotpal, said, "We did an anti-sabotage check at the hospital and Antilia. We have increased the security deployment at both locations. We have taken the call recording on our pendrive and we are analysing it."
"At 12.75 pm today and again at 5.04 pm October 5th, a call was received at the call centre of Sir HN Reliance Foundation Hospital threatening to blow up the hospital and threatening to take the lives of Mukesh Ambani, Nita Ambani, Akash Ambani and Anant Ambani.
The caller also threatened to blow up Antilia and gave multiple threats to members of the Ambani family. A police complaint has been registered and we are providing all the necessary details to the police in their investigations," RIL spokesperson said.
The government recently upgraded the security cover of industrialist Mukesh Ambani to the top category of 'Z+' after a review of perceived threat perception to him by central intelligence and security agencies, official sources said on September 29. A total of 40-50 commandos could be part of the security unit that works in shifts to provide the cover.
Nita Ambani, too, has a 'Y+' cover, which entails a lesser number of commandos.
In August this year, a jeweller was arrested after he allegedly called up the hospital and threatened to kill industrialist Ambani and his family members. In February 2021, a sports utility vehicle (SUV) laden with explosives was found near Ambani's south Mumbai residence 'Antilia'.
Later, some people, including then-police officer Sachin Waze, were arrested in connection with the incident.
