Salman Khan has been threatened with dire consequences in a social media post. It was written on the Facebook wall of Student Organisation of Punjab University (Sopu).
Shocking right? Who can threaten Bollywood's Dabangg star, Salman Khan? The Facebook page of a student organisation carried a picture of Salman with a red cross over his photograph, along with a message.
On the page, Gairi Shooter posted a picture of Salman and wrote, "Salman, think you can save yourself from Indian law? However, Vishnoi Samaj and Sopu Party have announced death sentence for you. You are an accused in Sopu's court. Salaam sahid da nu; Respect girls; Save animals; Avoid drugs & help poor; Sukha kahlon Garry (SIC).”
According to a TOI report, police began their investigation when the post went viral. The report quoted DCP Dharmendra Yadav as saying, "The police are on alert. We also gave proper security to the celebrity when he came here for hearing previously. An investigation has been initiated."
Last year, a gangster named Laurence Bishnoi had also issued a death threat to Salman Khan in front of policemen.
Post that, Salman's security was doubled, his father Salim Khan told Mid-Day, "There is added security for Salman, who has, in any case, always had a good team of security personnel deployed for him. It (threat) is not much of a concern (for the family). We are only worried about his safety, and that is being taken care of."
Coming back to the recent threat, this happened before the scheduled hearing on September 27, 2019 in the blackbuck killing case.
Salman, in 2018, received a five-year imprisonment term in the blackbuck killing case but is out on bail.
