Bollywood megastar Salman Khan was nearly killed outside his home in Mumbai by a sharpshooter sent by gangester Lawrence Bishnoi, according to media reports.
According to a reputed news network, a plan was devised to assassinate the Sultan actor, who recently made headlines after a death threat letter was received by his father Salim Khan.
As per the report, the shocking details of Salman’s assassination plan emerged during the investigation of Sidhu Moose Wala’s murder case.
During the course of the investigation into the murder of Sidhu Moose Wala, investigators uncovered some previously unknown information.
A sharpshooter came within inches of killing Salman outside his home, but he was reportedly saved by a whisker.
As per details, gangster Bishnoi, a suspect in the Moose Wala murder case, had sent a sharpshooter with a small-bore weapon hidden in a modified hockey casing to assassinate Salman.
Reportedly, Bishnoi and his associates had conducted a recce of the actor and learned that the actor isn’t accompanied by any of his security personnel during his morning cycling.
Thus the gangster planned to assassinate the actor at that time.
The sharpshooter was reportedly planted near the actor’s residence, Galaxy apartment.
However, on that very day, Khan was escorted by a police official.
That’s when, the attacker and his associates decided to drop the plan and backed out.
Who is Vikram Brar
The man who sent threats to Salman Khan and his father has been identified as Vikram Brar.
Brar, who is a close aide of Bishnoi, is currently said to be abroad.
He is the brother of Goldy Brar, who had claimed responsibility for Moosewala’s murder.
As per reports, Lawrence Bishnoi had promised to kill Salman Khan after the actor was involved in the blackbuck poaching case in 1998.
Apparently, Brar wanted to take advantage of the controversy surrounding Moosewala’s murder and extort money from Khan.
So he sent Salman a threat letter that said “Salim Khan, Salman Khan, bahut jald aapka Moosewala Hoga,”
(Salim Khan, Salman Khan, you will meet Moosewala’s fate very soon)”.
It ended with the initials ‘G.B.’ (Goldy Brar) and `L.B’ (Lawrence Bishnoi).
We pray that the Bollywood star and family stay safe and take all necessary precautions.
