Mumbai, Jun 05: Bollywood star Salman Khan and his father Salim Khan received a threat letter from an unknown person on Sunday.
'The Mumbai police stated that an FIR has been filed at Bandra Police station against an unknown person and probe is underway,' ANI reported.
On early Sunday morning, Salim Khan was sitting on a bench at the Bandra Bandstand, which is his routine, after a morning walk when an unidentified man handed him a letter which mentioned a threat to kill Salim and Salman, an official said told PTI.
Later, with the help of his security personnel, Salim Khan contacted the police and an FIR was registered under section 506-II (Criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) at the Bandra police station.
Further investigation is underway, the official added.
The threat assumes significance as it comes days after the murder of Punjabi singer Sidhu Moose Wala. The 28-year-old singer was shot dead by some unidentified attackers in Punjab's Mansa district on May 29, a day after the Punjab government curtailed his security cover.
Police suspect Moose Wala's killing to be the result of an inter-gang rivalry and the Lawrence Bishnoi gang was involved in it.
Lawrence Bishnoi was allegedly involved in hatching a plan to kill Bollywood actor Salman Khan. He belongs to the Bishnoi community, which believes blackbucks as sacred animals. He had planned to kill Khan over his involvement in a blackbuck poaching case.
