Bollywood actor Salman Khan’s security has been beefed up and now he will be given Y+ security by Mumbai Police. Recently, the actor received a threatening letter from the Lawrence Bishnoi gang, after which the state government has taken this step. In June, Salman Khan’s father and noted writer Salim Khan was sitting on a bench at Bandra Bandstand after a morning walk, when an unidentified person placed a letter threatening to kill the actor. Along with Salman, the Maharashtra government has increased the security of Akshay Kumar and Anupam Kher. He has got X category security.
Lawrence Bishnoi had threatened Salman Khan during a court hearing in Jodhpur even a few years back. He had said that Salman Khan had hurt the sentiments of Bishnois by hunting a black buck. He says that the Bishnoi society worships the black buck and Salman Khan has instigated the Bishnois by killing him.
The threat to Salman Khan was received on May 29, sometime after the murder of Punjabi singer Sidhu Moosewala. In the threatening letter, the condition of Salman Khan was also said to be like Sidhu Moosewala. After this, a case was registered at Bandra Police Station on the complaint of Salim Khan. Later the police recorded the statements of Salim Khan and Salman Khan.
