Only a week after the brutal murder of Punjabi singer Sindhu Moose Wala, Bollywood star Salman Khan started making headlines for receiving death threats. According to reports, the actor received a letter where the suspect wrote: “Tumhara Moose Wala Krdenge” (you will end up like Moose Wala). Many suspected that it must be the same person or group who killed the singer. However, besides a few suspects, the identity of Sidhu Moose Wala killer is still unknown.
Sidhu Moose Wala Killer Threatens Salman Khan
According to media reports, the letter from an unknown sender was found on a bench at Bandstand Promenade in Mumbai. Salman Khan’s father, Salim Khan, often sits at that bench during his morning walk. The Police registered the case under Section 506-II (criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code.
It is still unclear whether Sidhu Moose Wala killer sent the threat. However, the initial “GBLB” were present on the letter. It gave Police an idea that these initials might refer to Goldy Brar and Lawrence Bishnoi, two main suspects in the Sidhu Moose Wala murder case.
While investigating Brar and Bishnoi, the Police checked CCTV footage of the area where the letter was found. It also questioned the locals to get information. Following the threats, Maharashtra Home Department upgraded Salman Khan’s security detail as a precaution. CBI (Central Bureau of Investigation) officials visited Khan at his home, where his brothers Arbaaz Khan and Sohail Khan were also spotted.
The Dabangg actor attended the IIFA awards 2022 in Abu Dhabi when the threat letter arrived. He was seen on stage in an emotional state, grateful to all those who helped him in struggling days when he did not have enough money to afford the luxury. Khan is also scheduled to visit Hyderabad to shoot his upcoming film, Bhaijaan (formerly known as Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali).
Suspect Denies Involvement
The Police said that gangster Lawrence Bishnoi denied involvement in sending the threat letter. Bishnoi also denied his hand in the murder of Sidhu Moose Wala and snitched out the details of Delhi’s dark underbelly. He told them the names and hideouts of weapons dealers in Punjab, Hariyana, Rajasthan, and Uttrakhand. Police suspected that these dealers might have supplied arms to Sidhu Moose Wala killer.
Bishnoi also named a Canadian-based gangster Goldy Brar, who planned to kill Sidhu Moose Wala due to gang rivalry. Many noticed that this murder was similar to American gangster rapper Tupac Shakur’s killing in 1996.
