About a month ago, Salman Khan's residence in Bandra was attacked by two people who fired gunshots at the superstar's house. Now, another incident took place at the actor's Panvel farmhouse, and Navi Mumbai police revealed that this was another attempt by the same gang who planned to attack the actor when he was en route to his farmhouse.

Gangster Lawrence Bishnoi, who was responsible for the gunshots is said to be involved in this case as well. The criminal has been keeping Salman Khan on his radar since the Blackbuck case that took place in Rajasthan in 1998 during the shooting of Hum Saath Saath Hain. The actor has been allegedly receiving threats from him for quite some time now. 

The police informed that nearly 16-17 people were involved in the Navi Mumbai operation which has now failed where they were conducting a recce at Panvel in February this year. 

“We have made four arrests in the case. The accused had been plotting to target the actor for a long time and had stayed in Panvel to conduct recce,” Deputy Commissioner of Police Vivek Pansare said.

Speaking about the Mumbai attack, Vivek said, “Bishnoi has several groups working independently of each other and we suspect one gang was conducting recce in Panvel while the other was in Mumbai.”

If we go by the FIR, Nitin Thakre, Panvel's Senior Inspector received a tip-off that the gang members of Bishnoi were camping in Panvel to conduct a recce. Those arrested by the Navi Mumbai Police have been identified as Dhananjay Tapesingh alias Ajay Kashyap, Gaurav Bhatia alias Nahvi, Vapsi Khan alias Waseem Chikna and Rizwan Khan.

According to the authorities, Ajay Kashayp also contacted Dogar, a person residing in Pakistan so he could buy the AK-47s that could be used in the assault. The police revealed that the accused was supposed to go into hiding after the incident and reunite in Kanyakumari, from where they were supposed to reach Sri Lanka. 

According to an officer, the four suspected people who are now in custody are being questioned to see if they are connected to the Bandra incident. The Mumbai Crime Branch has arrested six accused in the Bandra case.
