Speaking to ABP News, Reliance Foundation Hospital CEO, Tarang Gianchandani said, “We have received 8 threat calls, today we are treating the caller as a terrorist, we have informed the police about this and we have also told our security guards.”

According to ABP News sources, a team of Mumbai Police, Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad team and Crime Branch team have reached Mukesh Ambani’s residence, Antilia.
