On 15th Oct`2013, the Shirdi Sai Baba Sansthan received a one-and-a-half page anonymous letter written in Hindi, threatening to trigger a blast @ the Shirdi Shrine exactly at 09:11pm on 09th November`2013.

The envelope bears a post office stamp, which indicates that the letter was posted from Shirdi. The anonymous letter has also threatened to set off explosions on the same day at 3 other places including the famous Khajrana Ganesh temple in Indore. The letter said the blasts will be triggered to avenge the killing of one Khalil & his relative in Indore. “Khalilbhai’s death shall not go waste,” says the letter.

The Shirdi Trust authorities informed the Ahmednagar police and handed over the letter to them. while beefing up the security at and around the Sai Baba shrine in Shirdi. The letter also mentioned a Car's registration number in which the bombers will escape after the attack. On verifying if such a car exists, the Shirdi Police found that, such a Car did exist and was registered in a mans name staying in Vijaynagar`Indore, having his office in Khajrana. They soon left for Indore to nterrogate that man. There were a couple of other points mentioned in the letter that are being verified for which the Police has formed two teams to investigate the matter.

The Shirdi Temple has increased security at the temple and has imposed a across the board ban on its employees / devotees carrying mobile phones in and around the temple. Commandos have also been deployed at the temple apart from the Temple's security.

Denying these rumors the Shirdi Sansthan's Executive Officer Shri.Ajay More has said that the daily routine programs of the Temple will be carried on, as before, on all days, including 09th Nov`2013. He said that nothing has or will be changed or shutdown and appealed to the people to not to believe such rumors !
