In a recent incident Fridabad police busted a sharpshooter of the Lawrence Bishnoi gang who is allegedly involved in a murder. What stunned the police is that the accused was targeting Bollywood star Salman Khan.
“During questioning, it has emerged that Rahul (accused) had travelled to Mumbai in January to conduct a recce for the murder of Salman Khan. He went to the actor’s house in Bandra for the purpose and stayed in the area for two days,” DCP Rajesh Duggal was quoted by the media.
As per the information the recce was conducted after the instruction of Bishnoi who is presently in Rajasthan prison.
“He conducted this recce at the behest of Bishnoi and Sampat Nehra, another member of the gang, who had also conducted a recce to plan for the same crime before he was arrested in June 2018,” DCP said.
Nehra was nabbed from Hyderabad for planning muder of the superstar. Apparently Lawrence Bishnoi is a member of the Bishnoi community, which reveres black bucks. As per the reports Salman’s 1998 black buck killing case led to Bishnoi holding a grudge against him.
“Rahul conducted the recce on the directions of Bishnoi and later apprised him of the findings. However, they were unable to take their plan to the next stage because of the coronavirus outbreak,” said the DCP.
