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 were presented before the court after a medical examination. On April 15, Salman Khan's brother Arbaaz Khan took to Instagram and released a statement on their family's behalf. In the post, Arbaaz stated that the particular "disturbing" incident has affected the family.

Arbaz Khan's statement

"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. Our family has been taken aback by this shocking incident that took place.

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 and the family remains unaffected which is not true and these views should not be taken seriously," Arbaaz Khan said on Instagram.

Arbaaz also stated that the family is fully cooperating with the Mumbai Police with the investigation. On April 14 two men who came on a motorbike fired four rounds outside the Galaxy Apartments, where the actor lives, around 5 am and fled. CCTV footage shows that both accused wore caps and carried backpacks.
