Wankhede, speaking to FPJ, stated that he received a threatening text message on his phone. An unknown person threatened to kill him, citing his involvement in the case of Aaryan Khan and his father Shah Rukh Khan. The message claimed that he would be killed by their group for allegedly hurting Muslim people and their sentiments. Wankhede, currently on duty in Chennai, disclosed that the texts were traced back to Rajshahi, a metropolitan city in Bangladesh.

"I immediately emailed the Mumbai Police Commissioner. Although we attempted to trace the number, it was determined that the source of the text was from Bangladesh. Further investigation revealed it was linked to extremist groups in Bangladesh. They also made derogatory remarks about the BJP and our country. Since I am on duty in Chennai, I have submitted a written complaint to the police.
