The letter, which had been discovered by Salim's security team on Sunday, reportedly contained the initials LB at the end. The police have questioned Lawrence since he has the same initials. “The letter in Hindi said that both Salim Khan and his son would soon meet the same fate as slain singer Sidhu Moose Wala (Tera Moosawala bana denge),” police sources told ANI on condition of anonymity. Lawrence was allegedly responsible for sending Salman threats once earlier too, in 2018.
Earlier, the Maharashtra department of Home Affairs upgraded the security cover for Salman after the threat letter. The Mumbai Police had lodged the First Information Report (FIR) on Sunday against an unknown person for sending the 'threat letter'.
According to the police, Salim Khan found the letter on a bench where he sits daily after jogging in the morning. As per police, the place is near the Bandra Bandstand promenade. He found the letter between 7.30-8 in the morning. It was addressed to him and Salman Khan.
Salman, who had travelled to Abu Dhabi for the IIFA Awards 2022, returned to Mumbai on Sunday itself. His brothers Sohail and Arbaaz were seen visiting him at his house in Galaxy Apartments on Monday evening. Reports say that the actor is set to travel to Hyderabad soon to shoot his upcoming film Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali.
