Wipro Receives Ransom Threat: ''Pay Rs 500 Crore Or Will Poison Office!''

Who is behind this threat? 

Software giant Wipro, which is India’s Information Technology Services Corporation, on May 5, 2017, received an email threat by an unidentified person, who warned the Company that he would poison the Campus with toxic drugs if the company failed to pay a sum of Rs. 500 crore. Headquartered in Bengaluru, the IT company, owned by Azim Premji, son of Mohamed Premji, has been under such attack for the first time.                         

Since the receipt of the threat mail, the Company has beefed up its security. But one may think why has Wipro received a threat? Is it an insider job or the Company faces threat from the outside? Is this threat a warning sign of bio-terrorism? These questions have an answer in the Police investigations that have started following the threat. As the Police initiate investigations to find the culprit behind this intimidating mail, let us take a look at the details of the incident.
