On Sunday morning, filmmaker and writer Salim Khan finished his walk and went to sit on the same bench at Mumbai’s Bandra Bandstand promenade on which he sits every day. He was accompanied by his two bodyguards, one of whom noticed an unsigned letter on the bench. It was a death threat addressed to Salim and his actor son Salman Khan , which said: “Salim Khan Salman Khan bahot jald tumahra Moosewala hoga k.G.B.L.B.” The police was contacted immediately and security was beefed up around the Khans. Additional security was provided for Salman, who left for Hyderabad to shoot for his upcoming film Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali yesterday evening.
The latest report shared by ANI has revealed that the statement of Salman, Salim and two others have been recorded by the Mumbai Police so far.
