Indian gangster Lawrence Bishnoi reportedly confessed to the police that he attempted to murder Bollywood star Salman Khan in 2018.

According to Pinkvilla, the Delhi police is currently interrogating Bishnoi for his involvement in singer Sidhu Moose Wala’s murder in late May. Amidst the investigation, the gangster allegedly admitted to have plotted the Ek Tha Tiger star’s murder in 2018.

According to reports, he said that the shooter he hired couldn’t get a clear shot because he was using a pistol. Bishnoi then purchased an RK Spring rifle worth Rs1.1 million to get the job done.

Times of India cited a source and stated, “Sampat Nehra, a key member of the Bishnoi gang, went to Mumbai a couple of years back and he stayed there with the intention of killing Salman Khan. When Sampat Nehra was arrested in 2018, he also revealed the gang’s plan to kill Salman Khan. A rifle was also seized from Sampat Nehra which was purchased for this purpose.”

The Bajrangi Bhaijaan actor and his father Salim Khan received threatening letters in June, mere days after the Moose Wala incident. It read, “Salim Khan, Salman Khan bahut jald aapka Moose Wala hoga.. [Salman Khan will be your Moose Wala very soon].” An FIR was filed and the Mumbai police quickly sprang into action and confirmed Bishnoi’s involvement. Meanwhile, Salman’s lawyer also received a threatening letter.

The Radhe actor has kept a low profile ever since. He also avoided his annual practice of stepping out into his balcony on Eid to wave at the large crowd of fans waiting outside.

Salman continues to work in silence though. On May 14, he shared the first look of Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali and wrote, “Shooting commences for my new film ….”

Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali will also feature Kriti Sanon, Pooja Hegde, Bigg Boss season 13 contestant and model Shehnaaz Gill, and Zaheer Iqbal. The movie is helmed by Farhad Samji and produced by Sajid Nadiadwala. It is scheduled to release on December 30 and according to the Indian media, Shah Rukh will also make a cameo in the movie.

Bollywood runs on underworld money. Nobody would have employed tinpot actors like the 4 little khans. Bishnoi actually looks more dashing than Salman by the way.

@Zak Pakistan too is ruled by gangs and religious fanatics. Our 70 year violent ethnic and secterian history is testimony to that fact.

Both Salman and Father Salim Khan are good people. They are humble and give out charity.

India is no different than any other country when it comes to crimes and those who face these crimes are the rich ones…. easy money for the evil ones. Good about this story is an FIR was filed and police took immediate action. Those accused and caught need to be eliminated asap.
