Sanjay Raut, an MP and leader of the Uddhav Thackeray faction, reportedly received a death threat from the Lawrence Bishnoi gang on Saturday, said the Mumbai Police.
According to the police, Raut has made a written complaint about this, and an investigation is currently being conducted. “Sanjay Raut received death threats stating that he will meet Sidhu Moose Wala’s fate. He got the threat from the Lawrence Bishnoi gang. The message said that if you met in Delhi, will kill you with AK 47. He wrote a letter to the police complaining about the matter,” the police said.
The number from which Raut received the threat message is being tracked by the officials.
Salman Khan, a Bollywood actor, had previously received a threat stating that he will “end up like Sidhu Moose Wala.” Dhakad Ram, a resident of Luni in Rajasthan’s Jodhpur district and the accused, was detained and turned over to Mumbai Police.
“In the case registered in Bandra police station of threats to kill Salman Khan via email, the Mumbai police team and Luni police team in joint action caught Dhakad Ram, a resident of Luni in Jodhpur district,” Luni Police Station Officer, Jodhpur Ishwar Chand Pareek said.
Gangsters Lawrence Bishnoi, Goldie Brar, and Rohit Garg were imprisoned last week after the Mumbai Police charged them with sending threatening emails to actor Salman Khan’s office. A case was filed by the Bandra Police in accordance with IPC sections 506(2), 120(b), and 34.
