The actor’s close friend has also filed a complaint under IPC sections 506(2) [Punishment for criminal intimidation], 120(b) [Punishment for criminal conspiracy], and 34 [common intention] against gangster Lawrence Bishnoi, Goldy Brar, and another individual for allegedly making threats against the actor.

According to reports, The threat mail was sent to the actor’s city office on Saturday afternoon. The email was sent to Rohit Garg which stated that Canadian gangster Goldy Brar wanted to speak with Salman Khan in person.

Police have also detained Lawrence and Goldy in connection with the incident. Lawrence, who is currently detained in Tihar, had before warned Salman to accept responsibility or prepare for the worst.

Lawrence Bishnoi is the alleged mastermind behind the murder of Punjabi musician Sidhu Moose Wala.
