More about the firing incident

ANI reported that the Mumbai Crime Branch officials on Wednesday said that the individuals involved in the firing incident outside Salman's Bandra residence 'intended just to scare him and not murder him'.

"The accused conducted a 'recce' of Salman Khan's farmhouse in Panvel. They intended to just scare him, not murder him. The statements of both families have been recorded in Bihar. Around 7 people have been called from Haryana and other states for questioning, which is ongoing," said a Mumbai Crime Branch official. Meanwhile, sources confirmed that the Mumbai Crime Branch will record Salman's statement as a witness in the case related to the firing. 

Upon the arrival of Mumbai Police officials at Salman's house following the incident on Sunday, the actor reportedly expressed anger and concern about his family's security. He also raised questions about the security provided by Mumbai Police, saying that such an incident took place despite the heavy deployment of security personnel at his place, sources said.

What actually happened

Earlier, the Mumbai Crime Branch disclosed that the perpetrators had conducted a reconnaissance of the actor's residence before carrying out the attack. Moments before the shooting, the assailants parked a motorcycle approximately 100 metres away from Salman's residence.

After confirming the absence of individuals outside the house, the shooters approached the premises on the motorcycle and opened fire before fleeing the scene. 

In another development, the Mumbai Police filed a case against Anmol Bishnoi in connection with the firing incident, citing his use of threatening language on Facebook. Anmol, who is the younger brother of jailed gangster Lawrence Bishnoi, wrote about the firing incident on Facebook and used threatening language, police said.
