Mumbai, April 11: A man called the Mumbai police control room on Monday night threatening to assassinate Salman Khan on April 30. The caller described himself as “Goushala Rakshak Rocky Bhai” from Jodhpur, Rajasthan. Also, he instructed the police to let the actor know about the call.
Officials from the Crime Branch and Mumbai police are attempting to find the caller.
Outside of Khan’s home, security has been strengthened. Due to a suspected threat to his life, the actor has already received Y+ category protection and bought a bulletproof vehicle.
Gangsters Lawrence Bishnoi, Goldy Brar, and Mohit Garg were named in an FIR filed by the Mumbai police last month for allegedly threatening Khan over email. But, police officers examining the situation think it to be a sham.
A 25-year-old Delhi resident who is currently studying in the UK sent the email. According to officials, he does not appear to be affiliated with the criminals Bishnoi and Brar or any other group.
The actor had previously received threats connected to the Bishnoi gang.
A letter from June of last year had been left at the actor Salim Khan’s favourite walking spot on Bandra Bandstand. The actor would suffer the same fate as singer Sidhu Moosewala, who passed away last year, according to the letter. In that instance, an FIR was also lodged, and the Bombay Crime Branch was given charge of the case.
