“Maharashtra Home Department strengthens actor Salman Khan’s security after a threat letter was sent to him and his father Salim Khan yesterday, June 5th,” as per reports. On Sunday, Mumbai Police had told the agency that a probe was underway after the discovery of the letter.
Police officer connected to the case said, “Salim Khan follows a morning routine where he goes for a walk on the promenade accompanied by his security personnel. There’s a location where he typically takes a break. A chit had been left behind on a bench.
”Salim’s security staff found the chit and gave it to him. “Moosa Wale jaisa kar dunga (Will make you like Moose Wala),” the chit read as per the report. Police are also checking the CCTV footage in the Bandstand area. Sidhu Moose Wala was shot dead in Punjab last month.
