As per the latest reports, Salman Khan and his father, veteran writer-producer Salim Khan have received an anonymous threat letter threatening to kill them. The Police Official said that on Sunday morning, Salim Khan as part of his daily morning routine was sitting on a bench at the Bandra Bandstand after a walk when an unidentified man handed him a letter with a threat to kill him and Salman. An FIR has been registered at Bandra police station against an unknown person in the case and a further probe is underway.
According to the Times of India report, the threat letter was found by Salim’s security staff. The web portal quoted a police officer as saying, “Salim Khan follows a morning routine where he goes for a walk on the promenade accompanied by his security personnel. There’s a location where he typically takes a break. A chit had been left behind on a bench.” Following this, the Mumbai Police immediately filed the case under section 506-II (Criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) at the Bandra police station. The officials also checked the CCTV footage of the area to identify the unknown person. ALSO READ: SHOCKING!

Salman and his father received a threat letter days after the actor’s security was beefed up after jailed gangster Lawrence Bishnoi emerged as the key accused in Punjabi Singer Sidhu Moose Wala’s murder. A Senior Police official was quoted saying, “We have enhanced the overall security of Salman Khan. Police will be present around his apartment to make sure the gang from Rajasthan does no nefarious activity.”
For the unversed, Bishnoi had once threatened to kill Salman Khan in connection with the blackbuck poaching case. The Bishnois hold the blackbuck sacred and thus the 700-member Bishnoi gang threatened to murder Salman Khan.
Meanwhile, the Sultan actor returned from Abu Dhabi after wrapping up IIFA 2022 this weekend.
