Following an indirect threat issued to Bollywood actor Salman Khan on Facebook, the Mumbai Police conducted a security review for him on Tuesday. The threat, posted on an account with gangster Lawrence Bishnoi’s photo as the display picture, prompted the police to reassess Khan’s security arrangements.
It is important to note that Bishnoi is currently incarcerated in a drug smuggling case being investigated by the National Investigation Agency (NIA). A Facebook post targeting Punjabi singer Gippy Grewal, linked to a recent attack on his residence in Vancouver, also issued a chilling warning to Bollywood actor Salman Khan.
“You think Salman Khan is your brother, but now it’s time for your ‘brother’ to step up and save you. This message is also for Salman Khan – don’t fool yourself into thinking Dawood will save you; no one can save you,” the post asserted.
Your theatrical reaction to Sidhu Moose Wala’s demise did not go unnoticed. We are all aware of his character and the criminal connections he maintained. You have now drawn our attention. Consider this a preview; the full picture will be unveiled shortly. Escape to any nation you like, but keep in mind that death does not require a visa; it arrives unannounced,” the post concluded.
Your exaggerated response to Sidhu Moose Wala’s passing did not go unnoticed. We are all familiar with the type of individual he was and the criminal connections he maintained. You have now drawn our attention. Consider this a teaser; the full story will be revealed shortly. Flee to any nation you choose, but keep in mind that death does not require a visa. It arrives uninvited,” the post added.
Salman Khan’s security was bolstered in March this year following an email death threat purportedly originating from the Lawrence Bishnoi gang. Bishnoi is also suspected of masterminding the assassination of Punjabi singer Sidhu Moose Wala. The email, composed in Hindi, warned Salman Khan to review Lawrence Bishnoi’s recent interview with a news channel, or risk facing the consequences.
