Identified Shooters Used Raigad-Registered Motorcycle in Firing at Salman Khan’s Home

A day after the firing at Salman Khan’s home in Mumbai, investigations reveal the motorcycle used by the shooters is from Raigad district. The police are tracking the vehicle to determine its origin and the attackers, identified as Vishal and another from Rajasthan, both members of a gang.

Vishal, known as Kalu, has a criminal history and spent time in Tihar Jail for thefts in 2020. The other shooter’s identity has not been disclosed. The incident occurred at 5 a.m. on Sunday when at least four bullets were fired at Salman Khan’s home in Bandra.

Anmol Bishnoi, brother of gangster Lawrence Bishnoi, claimed responsibility for the attack and warned of further action in a social media post. The threat came from the ‘Bishnoi group’ which includes Goldy Brar, Rohit Godara, and Kala Jathedi. The post warned Salman Khan of dire consequences in the future.

Salman Khan and his family have been facing death threats from Punjab-based mafia groups for several years. The threats escalated after the blackbuck poaching incident in Rajasthan in 1998. In response, the Mumbai police upgraded Khan’s security, issued a gun license, and he acquired a bullet-proof SUV for protection.

The threats to Salman Khan’s life have been a cause for concern, prompting increased security measures and precautions. The ongoing investigations into the firing incident at his residence are continuing, as the authorities work to apprehend those responsible and ensure the safety of the Bollywood megastar and his family.
