Salman Khan, A History of Threats

This isn’t the first time Salman Khan has faced threats. In March 2023, the actor received an email threatening his life, allegedly from gangster Lawrence Bishnoi and his associate Goldy Brar. This followed an interview where Bishnoi threatened Khan in connection with the infamous 1998 blackbuck poaching case.

Following these threats, Khan’s security was upgraded to the Y+ category, which provides armed protection. However, Sunday’s incident raises questions about the effectiveness of these measures.

Lingering Questions

The motive behind the attack remains unclear. Whether it’s linked to the past threats or something entirely new is yet to be determined. The investigation is ongoing, and all eyes are on the Mumbai Police for a swift resolution.

This incident serves as a stark reminder of the vulnerability of celebrities and the ever-present threat of violence. Only time will tell if justice is served and Salman Khan can finally find peace.
