Second Attempt on Salman Khan:

As per a report by ANI, Navi Mumbai Police arrested four members of the Bishnoi gang who allegedly planned to target Khan's car while he was travelling to his farmhouse in Panvel. The investigation revealed the gang's intent to procure weapons from a Pakistani arms supplier. An FIR has been registered against over 17 individuals, including Lawrence Bishnoi, Anmol Bishnoi, and Goldy Brar. The investigation is ongoing.

Recce Conducted in Panvel:

Deputy Commissioner of Police Vivek Pansare confirmed the arrests and stated, "The accused had been planning this attack for a long time. They even resided in Panvel for a recce." The arrested individuals have been identified as Dhananjay Tapesingh alias Ajay Kashyap, Gaurav Bhatia alias Nahvi, Vapsi Khan alias Waseem Chikna, and Rizwan Khan.

Previous Attack and Increased Security:

On April 14, 2024, two assailants on a motorcycle fired shots outside Salman Khan's Bandra residence. Six people were arrested in connection with that incident, with one accused (Anuj) passing away. Currently, four are in judicial custody, while one remains in police custody.

Following the April attack, security around Salman Khan's residence has been significantly heightened. The Maharashtra Police have also provided him with Y+ security. Chief Minister Eknath Shinde personally visited Khan's residence to assure the family of strict action against the perpetrators.

Despite the recent threats, Salman Khan appears undeterred. He is currently attending a pre-wedding cruise celebration for Anant Ambani and Radhika Merchant, along with the Ambani family.
