Mumbai Police Arrest 2 Shooters from Gujarat’s Bhuj for Firing at Salman Khan’s Home

In a major breakthrough, the Mumbai Police have arrested two persons allegedly involved in the firing incident outside the residence of Bollywood actor Salman Khan from Gujarat, early on Tuesday. The duo, tracked and caught within 48 hours, is being brought to Mumbai later today for court remand.

The shooters fired at least four bullets at Salman Khan’s home in Galaxy Apartments in Bandra West around 5 a.m. on April 14 and fled to Bhuj, Gujarat. The Navi Mumbai Police had earlier detained two persons connected with the motorbike bearing a Raigad registration number used in the attack.

The police are investigating the motorcycle to determine if it was sold, missing, or stolen. They are also looking into any potential threats in Raigad, where the Khan family has a farmhouse in Panvel. Anmol Bishnoi, brother of gangster Lawrence Bishnoi, claimed responsibility for the attack in a social media post, warning of future direct threats to Salman Khan.

“Salman Khan, this is just to show you a trailer, to make you understand our power and not to test our patience further… This is the first and final warning to you,” said the post. The Khan family has been facing death threats from mafia groups since the 1998 blackbuck poaching incident in Rajasthan.

Salman Khan and his father Salim Khan have received death threats in various ways, including dropping a letter to the family. The police are conducting a thorough investigation into the incident to ensure the safety of the actor and his family.
