Siddharth gets police protection after receiving death threats

Siddharth has been voicing his dissent against the BJP government and their governance in handling the Covid-19 pandemic. He has also been at the receiving end of abuse because of his blatant criticism. Recently, Siddharth took to social media to allege that BJP's IT Wing has leaked his phone number. Following this, Siddharth has been receiving death and rape threats. He also received calls from unknown numbers who threatened him. Siddharth submitted the recorded phone calls and screenshots from Facebook to the police.

 
He was then offered protection from Tamil Nadu police, which he politely refused. He wrote, "Thank you @tnpoliceoffl for the protection. I am the first person in my entire family's history to be given the same. However, I would politely like to give up this privilege so the same officers' time is better used for something else during this pandemic. Thank you again. My mother is afraid. I had no other words to give her courage and reassurance so I read her some of yours from your tweets. Thank you for telling me I'll be ok. We are very normal people from very simple backgrounds. Your words mean the world. Let's get back to work and help."
