Days after a firing incident outside his residence, Bollywood superstar Salman Khan was spotted at the Mumbai airport on Friday morning.
Salman was flanked by guards on all sides as he entered the airport. Also present with him was his trusted personal bodyguard Shera.
This is the first time Salman is flying out of Mumbai after last week’s shooting incident outside his home in Bandra’s Galaxy Apartment.
Donning a casual look, Salman greeted the paparazzi stationed outside the airport with a nod from afar.
Earlier, on Tuesday, Kutch Police arrested the two accused persons and handed them to the Mumbai Crime Branch. Later, a city court sent the two accused to the custody of the Mumbai Crime Branch until April 25 in connection with the firing incident.
The accused, identified as Vicky Gupta (24) and Sagar Pal (21) from Bihar, were presented before the court after a medical examination.
The two men, who came on a motorbike, fired four rounds outside the Galaxy Apartments, where the actor resides, around 5 am on Sunday morning and fled.
CCTV footage showed that both accused sported caps and carried backpacks. The clip also showed them firing in the direction of the actor’s home. After the arrest of the accused, Kutch DSP AR Zankant said preliminary investigations revealed that the accused were in contact with the Lawrence Bishnoi gang.
“Mumbai Police is investigating the case of firing outside the residence of actor Salman Khan. We informed the Kutch Police that the two accused had fled to the Gujarat district. Different teams were formed to catch the accused.
They were eventually arrested by the Kutch Police and handed over to the Mumbai Police. During primary interrogation of the accused, we learned that they were in contact with the Lawrence Bishnoi gang,” DSP Zankant said.
Notably, since November 2022, Salman’s security level has been elevated to Y-Plus after threats from gangsters Lawrence Bishnoi and Goldy Brar. The actor was also authorised to carry a personal firearm and has also acquired a new armoured vehicle for added protection.
On Monday, Salman’s brother Arbaaz Khan issued a statement on the family’s behalf, saying they all have been affected due to the ‘disturbing’ firing incident.
“The recent incident of firing by two unidentified person in a motorcycle at Galaxy Apartment, the residence of the Salim Khan family, is very disturbing and unnerving.
Unfortunately, some people claiming to be close to our family and pretending to be the spokesperson have been making loose statements to the media, saying it’s all a publicity stunt, which is not true, and these views should not be taken seriously,” the statement read. (ANI)
