Jailed gangster Lawrence Bishnoi has been interrogated over a threat letter found outside actor Salman Khan's house in Mumbai.

Salman Khan's father Salim, 87, was handed over the unsigned, hand-written threat letter on Sunday morning around 7.30 a.m by an unknown person on a bench where he normally rests after jogging at the Bandra Bandstand promenade, and it was addressed to him and his son Salman.

Khan opened it and saw that it had a single line written on it in Hindi, saying that him and Salman would soon meet the same fate as murdered singer Siddhu Moosewala.

The letter also carried two initials - G.B. and L.B. As per reports, G.B. could mean Goldy Brar, while the latter appears to be a reference to Lawrence Bishnoi.

However, it is not known whether it was Bishnoi who wrote the letter or someone used their names as a prank.

The police are scouring CCTV footage of the area for clues and questioning locals for further leads on the threat letter.

As per reports, Bishnoi is allegedly involved has over five dozen criminal cases lodged against him in Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan and Punjab and had once also threatened to murder Salman Khan.

According to a report, back in 2018, one of Bishnois' henchmen was caught after he threatened to kill the bollywood actor in connection with the blackbuck poaching case.

The Bishnois hold the blackbuck sacred, the report said.
