Bishnoi gang issues final warning before firing at Salman Khan’s home

Mumbai, April 14 (IANs) – Jailed gangster Lawrence Bishnoi’s mafia outfit has claimed responsibility for the firing at Bollywood megastar Salman Khan’s home just before dawn here on Sunday. Anmol Bishnoi, Lawrence’s brother, warned Salman Khan of future attacks in a chilling Facebook post.

Anmol Bishnoi, speaking on behalf of the ‘Bishnoi group’, stated, “Salman Khan, this is just to show you a trailer, to make you understand our power… This is the first and final warning to you.” The post came hours after the brazen shooting at Salman Khan’s Bandra home.

Shortly after the incident, a group of unidentified persons on a motorcycle fired at least 4 shots at Salman Khan’s residence before fleeing the scene. This act has heightened concerns for the safety of Khan and his family as they have been receiving death threats in recent years.

The Bandra Police swiftly responded to the attack, launched an investigation, and bolstered security in the area. The police are currently studying CCTV footage to identify the perpetrators and ascertain their intent.

The firing incident has sparked outrage, prompting Maha Vikas Aghadi leaders to criticize the state government over the breakdown of law and order. Senior MVA leaders have expressed concerns about the rise in shootouts and violence in public places, instilling fear in the minds of the public.

Despite the threats, Salman Khan continues to reside with his family at the Galaxy Apartments in Bandra. The 58-year-old actor has faced persistent threats from the Lawrence Bishnoi gang since the 1998 blackbuck poaching case.

In response to the escalating threats, the Mumbai police have increased Salman Khan’s security detail, granted him a gun license, and helped him acquire a bullet-proof SUV for added protection. The safety measures are in place to ensure the well-being of the Bollywood icon amid growing security concerns.

The situation remains tense as authorities work to apprehend the perpetrators and prevent future attacks on Salman Khan and his family. The incident serves as a stark reminder of the ongoing threats faced by high-profile individuals in the entertainment industry.
