The Mumbai Police has informed that an unknown person called the police control room and said that gangster Lawrence Bishnoi's man was going to come to Mumbai and carry out a major incident. “After the call, the Mumbai Police control contacted the local police station," it said.

This comes just days after two individuals on a two-wheeler opened fire outside Salman Khan's Bandra residence on April 14. The Kutch Police on Tuesday arrested the two accused identified as Vicky Gupta (24) and Sagar Pal (21) and handed them to the Mumbai Crime Branch. Later, a city court sent the two accused to the custody of the Mumbai Crime Branch until April 25 in connection with the firing incident.

The accused identified as Rohit Tyagi was from Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh. "When the cab driver reached Galaxy Apartment at Salman Khan's house and asked the watchman there about the booking, the watchman who was stunned at first, immediately informed about the booking to the nearby Bandra Police Station," said police as reported by ANI.
