However, the reason of the death threat is not yet revealed.
Further details are awaited.
Two weeks ago, the Lawrence Bishnoi gang also threatened Bollywood actor Salman Khan of killing him, on which he filed a police complaint in the Bandra Police Station.
The actor’s office received the death threat via an en-mail. The threat mail stated that Goldy Brar – close associate of Lawrence Bishnoi – wanted to talk to Salman.
Notably, Gangster Lawrence Bishnoi is the alleged mastermind behind the brutal murder of Sidhu Moose Wala. He is currently lodged in a Punjab jail.
After the death threat, Salman’s security was beefed up by the Mumbai Police.
However, this is not the first time the actor received death threat by Lawrence Bishnoi gang.
In 2018, Lawrence Bishnoi had stated that the actor hurt the sentiments of the Bishnoi community by hunting a black buck. The statement by the gangster came when the trial of the blackbuck poaching case was underway - a charge that the Khan was eventually acquitted of.
