Jailed gangster Lawrence Bishnoi has been interrogated over a threat letter found outside actor Salman Khan’s Mumbai house, sources said.
The letter mentions the names of Mr Khan and his father, veteran actor Salim Khan. It threatens the two saying soon they would become Sidhu Moose Wala, the Punjabi singer who was shot dead in his car last month. Canada-based gangster Goldy Brar has claimed responsibility for the murder in a Facebook post.
It also carried two initials – G.B. and L.B. While G.B. could mean Goldy Brar, the latter seems like a reference to Lawrence Bishnoi, who is currently in special cell custody. However, it is not known whether it was Bishnoi who has sent the letter or someone used their names to do the mischief.
Meanwhile, Mr Khan’s security has been strengthened following the recovery of the threat letter. The police are also scouring through CCTV footages outside his residence. A case has been registered and investigation has begun.
Lawrence Bishnoi had apparently planned an attack on Mr Khan during the shooting of his 2011 movie, but it failed due to an issue over weapons. Gangster Naresh Shetty was given the task of attacking the actor.
