Apparently, Sushil's family members are now getting extortion and kidnapping threats. The family is shocked and unsure of what action to take next. Sushil, on the other hand, played safe by making it clear, "I think reports about kidnapping threats and extortion bring a bad name to our state and to my home town. Whatever the risks and dangers, let me first state I don't have the prize money with me. It will take a couple of months to be cleared and deposited in my account. Secondly, the people of Motihari have formed a protective cordon around me. They are proud of what I've achieved and if any harm was to come to me or my family members, I don't know what the people here will do." (Reported by Rediff.com)
But an excited Sushil said that he is in the seventh heaven. He is overwhelmed to receive countless best wishes and love from his hometown public. He feels that the love he received from them is far more winning the money.
