Salman Khan received a death threat from gangster Bishnol’s personal aide: Police

Vikram Brar, a close aide of mobster Lawrence Bishnoi, has been identified as the individual who issued the murder threat to Bollywood megastar Salman Khan and his father, film writer Salim Khan, according to police sources.

Brar, who is currently thought to be aboard, is alleged to be facing more than a dozen criminal prosecutions in several Indian states.

“Brar was born in Hanumangarh, Rajasthan, but currently resides in the United States. He is a well-known Rajasthani mobster. He got along well with Anmol, the younger brother of mobster Anandpal, who was slain in a shootout “According to a police source. The Mumbai police had suspected the Bishnoi gang’s participation and had increased up security at the Khans’ apartment in Galaxy Apartments, Bandra West, since last Sunday as a precaution.

Vishwas Nangre-Patil, the Joint Commissioner of Police, had also met with Home Minister Dilip Walse-Patil to update him.

The possible attackers were suspected by Mumbai police of conducting a careful reconnaissance of the Khans’ local movements and residence.

Bishnoi had previously threatened to kill Salman Khan after the actor was implicated in a black buck poaching case in Rajasthan in 1998.

Around 7:30 a.m. on Sunday, an unknown person delivered Salim Khan, 87, an unsigned, hand-written threat letter on a bench where he typically rests after jogging at the Bandra Bandstand promenade.

It was addressed to him and his son Salman, and they immediately contacted their security to report the incident to the police.

The Bandra police had taken serious notice and had filed a FIR against unknown persons for sending death threats, as well as begun their investigation. The Mumbai Police Crime Branch had begun its own probe as well.

The threat letter ended with a couple of initials, including ‘L.B.,’ which the police believe stands for ‘Lawrence Bishnoi,’ according to the police.
