Anmol Bishnoi — the brother of gangster Lawrence Bishnoi — has claimed responsibility for firing gunshots outside actor Salman Khan's Mumbai home. Two unidentified bike-borne assailants opened fire outside the actor's residence early on Sunday morning. The Mumbai Police have since registered an FIR and recovered a two-wheeler about a kilometre from the actor’ home.

“We want peace. If the only decision against oppression is war, then so be it. Salman Khan, we have only shown you a trailer so that you understand the magnitude of our strength and do not test it. This is the first and last warning. After this, shots will not be fired outside the house only. And we have dogs named after Dawood Ibrahim and Chota Shakeel, whom you consider to be Gods. Now, I don't have the habit of talking much," read a Facebook post attributed to Bishnoi.

The post was attributed to Bishnoi by India Today and other publications. It is however pertinent to note that Livemint could not independently verify its authenticity.

Visuals shared online showed the two bikers cruising along the stretch of road outside Khan's residence. The Mumbai police is currently in the process of ascertaining the identities of the accused. As per an update on Sunday evening, the case has now been handed over to the Mumbai Crime Branch.

The preliminary investigation suggested that the firing by the bike-borne persons had the appearance of a calculated attack. News agency ANI quoted a senior police officer as saying that a total of four rounds were fired by the accused with a live cartridge also recovered from the spot.

Earlier in March, the Mumbai Police had registered an FIR against three individuals including Lawrence Bishnoi and Goldy Brar after Khan's office received an email threatening the actor. The FIR was based on a complaint lodged with the Bandra police by one Prashant Gunjalkar, who according to cops frequently visited the Bandra-based residence of Khan and ran an artist management company.
