Salman Khan will receive Y+ grade security protection from Mumbai Police.
In light of recent threats against him made by the Lawrence Bishnoi gang, the Maharashtra government has decided that Mumbai Police will henceforth provide actor Salman Khan with Y+ category security cover, an upgrading by two levels. The 12 armed cops he was assigned as part of “X” security would now now include commandos, according to this development. The actors Anupam Kher and Akshay Kumar have ‘X’ category security.
Two months after men allegedly supported by Lawrence Bishnoi, who is currently incarcerated, killed Punjabi musician Sidhu Moose Wala close to his village in the Mansa district of Punjab, Salman Khan received a threat.
Salim Khan, Salman Khan’s father and a writer, discovered the threat on a piece of paper that had been put on a bench where he usually sat after his daily stroll. “Salim Khan Salman Khan bahut jald aapka Moose Wala hoga,” it said, threatening to “do what we did to Moose Wala”.
Last month, Delhi Police asserted that criminals attempted to make friends with some of the personnel at the actor’s estate in order to learn more about his schedule.
Lawrence Bishnoi denies any role in this “threat chit”, but he had some years earlier threatened to kill Salman Khan.
Lawrence Bishnoi claimed to reporters that Salman Khan had offended the Bishnois, a group that includes a love of animals among its precepts, by going blackbuck hunting. The actor was ultimately found not guilty of this accusation.
According to the Eknath Shinde-BJP government of Maharashtra, the state’s Home department decided to grant Salman Khan ‘Y Plus,’ the fourth highest security grade presently offered in India, following a threat perception analysis.
Salman Khan has had private security for a long time. His primary guard, Gurmeet Singh aka Shera, who has gained some popularity, keeps an eye on him.
