Meanwhile, the Mumbai police has registered an FIR into the matter. The police stated that Salim Khan had gone to the promenade for a morning walk at around 7:40 am. He got settled on the bench that he usually sits on and his guards found the letter there.
Likewise, Salim Khan informed the police while his statement has been recorded. Similarly, a case under the Indian Penal Code for ‘criminal intimidation' has been registered into the matter.
The death threat to Salman Khan via letter comes a few days after it was reported that Salman's security has been beefed up as Lawrence Bishnoi was said to be the key accused in Sidhu Moose Wala’s murder.
Back in 2018, Salman Khan was on the radar of Lawrence Bishnoi. Recently, Salman Khan was spotted in Abu Dhabi at IIFA Awards 2022 where he attended the show with several other Bollywood stars.
