"These factors put together has made discharging of my duties tedious and involving which requires more energy, agility and movement,” read the letter in part.

In his response, Kaynan said the letter was baseless and was channelling the matter to the authorities.

“I wish to notify members of the public to consider the letter FAKE and disregard the baseless details as I seek to bring the matter to the attention of relevant investigative agencies to swiftly act and pursue the matter to its ultimate end,” Keynan wrote on his Twitter.
