Salman Khan's death threat case: Gangster Lawrence Bishnoi's involvement confirmed
The Mumbai Police has identified that gangster Lawrence Bishnoi is involved in sending the threat letter to Bollywood actor Salman Khan and his father screenwriter Salim Khan. After interrogating Siddhesh Hiraman Kamble aka Saurabh Mahakal—a member of Bishnoi's gang—it has been revealed that Bishnoi's close aide Vikram Barad was the one who took the letter to Salim. Here is more about the case.
- The letter was issued on Sunday, days after the assassination of popular Punjabi singer Sidhu Moose Wala.
- The letter was discovered by Salim's security personnel when the writer went for a walk at Mumbai's Bandra Bandstand promenade.
- It carried the message "Tumhara Moose Wala kar denge (you will end up like Moose Wala)."
- Bishnoi had issued a death threat to Salman in 2018, too.
The police said on Thursday, "Jailed gangster Lawrence Bishnoi had issued the letter to Salman Khan and his father Salim Khan." "Three people from his gang had come from Jalore, Rajasthan to Mumbai to drop the letter and had met accused Saurabh Mahakal," the police added. The people involved in delivering the threat letter have also been identified by the cops.
About the accused who delivered the letter, the police said, "There are clues related to them. They will be arrested soon." "Right after their identification, six teams have been dispatched to different parts of India to nab them," said the investigators. Mahakal was interrogated to identify those who delivered the threat letter to Khan and his father after which police confirmed their identities.
Meanwhile, the Delhi Police on Wednesday said that Bishnoi was the mastermind behind the killing of Moose Wala. Kamle—who was an aide of Moose Wala's main shooter—was also arrested for his involvement. Moose Wala was assassinated in Punjab on May 29. Bishnoi's gang posted on Facebook that he was assassinated to avenge the death of Vikramjit Singh Middukhera, a Youth Akali Dal leader.
