POLICE investigations have started into claims made by a man that he was threatened by four men at his Nakasi home after applying to a political party to contest this year's general election.

The businessman said the men approached him at his home and told him they would burn his house if he contested the election under the said party's banner.

"I was so scared that I just got into the car and drove right to the police station."

The man said his son, who is a police officer, was also at home but was asleep because he had just knocked off from work.

Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro confirmed that officers received a report from a man on January 9, this year, claiming he was threatened by four men outside his house. Ms Naisoro said police investigations were continuing.
