Mumbai Police Detains 25-Year-Old Man Over Suspicious Criminal Intimidation Relating To Salman Khan

A crime branch official told news agency on Sunday that Mumbai Police have detained a 25-year-old Rajasthani man on suspicion of criminal intimidation in relation to a video that allegedly threatens actor Salman Khan.

In a video that he allegedly posted to his YouTube account, the accused—who is named as Bundi resident Banwarilal Laturlal Gujar—apparently said, “Lawrence Bishnoi, Goldy Brar, and other gang members are with me and I am going to kill Salman Khan as he did not apologise yet.”

According to the authority, a Rajasthani roadway was used to record the video. “Considering the seriousness of the case,” an official stated, “a team was sent to Rajasthan for investigation and apprehended the accused.” The Mumbai cyber police station has received the case.

“We are verifying if Gujar has any prior criminal background,” the official said. “He has been arrested under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code, including 506(2) (punishment for criminal intimidation), and provisions of the Information Technology (IT) Act. Further investigation is underway.”

The arrest follows gunfire outside Khan’s Bandra home in April from two individuals on motorbikes. In that case, six people were detained; Anuj Thapan, one of them, is said to have committed suicide in police custody in May.

In relation to a different plot to target Khan, Navi Mumbai Police had also detained five individuals, including a suspected member of the Lawrence Bishnoi and Goldy Brar gangs.

Four gang members had reportedly performed surveillance around the actor’s property, Bandra home, and filming locations, according to police reports.

In relation to the firing case, authorities intend to apply for custody of Lawrence Bishnoi, who is presently being held at Sabarmati Central Prison in Ahmedabad. In relation to the case, his brother Anmol, who is thought to be in Canada, is also wanted.
