It has been reliably learnt that a couple of city-based businessmen, who had been served extortion notice recently, have downed their shutters and left the city fearing threat from the militant groups.

However, police could not confirm any such recent incidents, stating, �Until and unless a formal complaint is lodged with us, it becomes very difficult for us to intervene and take necessary action.�
