A Kolkata couple on Monday lodged a complaint with the Cyber Cell of Kolkata Police after it allegedly received death threats.

The couple was reportedly listed on social media as a case of "love jihad."

The list was posted by Hindutva Varta on Facebook in January which was later deleted.

"Yeh ek suchi hai un hindu ladkiyon ke Facebook profile ki jo love jihad ka shikar ho chuki hain yah ho rahi hain? har....sher se aagrah hai, inme jo ladke hain, unki khoj ke shikaar karein (This is a list of Facebook profiles of Hindu women who are victims of love jihad? We call upon all... tigers to find out the men listed in these profiles and hunt them)," the post read.

Hindutva Varta also shared links to profiles of inter-faith couples from across the country in the post and asked Hindu girls to be "wary of men" from other religions.

Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime) Praveen Tripathi said, "We are investigating the case. A possible source involved in the matter has been identified."
