Lawrence Bishnoi Gang Member Arrested in Connection to Firing Outside Salman Khan’s Residence

Mumbai Police have apprehended another individual linked to the Lawrence Bishnoi gang in relation to the shooting incident outside Bollywood superstar Salman Khan’s home last month. The suspect, Harpal Singh, a 34-year-old resident of Fatehabad in Haryana, was taken into custody by the Mumbai crime branch on Monday evening, officials reported on Tuesday.

According to an official statement, Singh was transported to Mumbai in the early hours of Tuesday. He is scheduled to be presented before a court later in the day.

The incident in question occurred on April 14, when two individuals on a motorcycle fired shots outside Khan’s residence at the Galaxy Apartment in Mumbai’s Bandra area before fleeing the scene. The arrest of Singh came after the interrogation of Mohammed Rafique Chowdhary, another member of the Bishnoi gang, who had been detained earlier this month in connection to the same case.

During questioning, Chowdhary revealed Singh’s involvement. He stated that Singh had instructed him to conduct reconnaissance around Khan’s residence and provided him with a sum of 2-3 lakh rupees. This information led to Singh’s arrest.

The notorious Lawrence Bishnoi, currently imprisoned in Sabarmati central prison in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, and his younger brother Anmol Bishnoi, who is believed to be residing in the US or Canada, have both been implicated in the shooting incident.

This latest arrest adds another layer to the ongoing investigation into the firing outside one of Bollywood’s most high-profile residences. The case highlights the extensive reach and operational tactics of the Lawrence Bishnoi gang, which has been linked to various criminal activities across multiple states.

The Mumbai Police’s swift action and continued efforts in tracking down the suspects involved demonstrate their commitment to ensuring the safety and security of high-profile individuals and the general public. The incident has also underscored the need for heightened security measures around celebrities’ residences, given the increasing threats posed by organized crime groups.

As the investigation progresses, more details are expected to emerge about the motives behind the attack and the broader criminal network orchestrated by the Bishnoi gang. This case has brought to light the ongoing challenges law enforcement faces in tackling organized crime and ensuring the safety of prominent figures in the entertainment industry.
