Actor Salman Khan received threats via emails, following which Mumbai Police beefed up security outside the actor's house. Salman Khan receives Y category security, as he is perceived to be under threat from Lawrence Bishnoi gang.

The threat to Salman Khan's life came to the forefront after Punjabi singer Sidhu Moosewala's death. 

 The Bandra Police has also registered a case under sections 506(2),120(b) & 34 of IPC.

Earlier on Saturday, Mumbai Police booked jailed gangsters Lawrence Bishnoi, Goldie Brar and Rohit Garg for allegedly sending threatening emails to actor Salman Khan's office.

This comes after another media house had released a ‘super exclusive’ video with jailed gangster Lawrence Bishnoi, who has claimed that Salman Khan had insulted his community by killing Blackbuck deer. Bishnoi had claimed in the interview that he would ‘break Salman Khan’s ego'. 

Lawrence said, "There is anger in our society for Salman Khan. He humiliated my society. A case was filed against him but he did not apologise. If he does not tender an apology, be ready to face the consequences. I will not depend on anyone else."

He also added, "There is anger in my mind for him since childhood. Will break his ego sooner or later. He should come to our deity's temple and apologise. If our society forgives, then I will not say anything."

Notably, this is the second time when Khan's office received deaths threats. 

Salman and his father Salim Khan received a death threat just days after the death of Punjabi singer Sidhu Moose Wala. As per details, Salim's security team found the letter outside their Mumbai home near the Bandra Bandstand promenade, where he goes for his routine morning jog.

Salman had then  submitted an application to the Mumbai Police seeking a weapon licence for his own protection after the threat letter.

The note had read, “Moosewala jaisa kar doonga (You will suffer the same fate as Moosewala)" referring to the killing of Punjabi singer Sidhu Moosewala in Punjab’s Mansa district on May 29. The note was allegedly sent by Lawrence Bishnoi, though he had denied his involvement in it.
