Police had increased the security of the actor after he allegedly received a death threat from Lawrence Bishnoi and the Goldie Brar gang.

Salman recently met with Mumbai Police Commissioner Vivek Phansalkar and Joint Commissioner of Police (Law and Order) Vishwas Nangre Patil.

There had been reports that Salman has upgraded to an armoured and bulletproof Land Cruiser ever since the threats.

Based on Salman's application, the police have issued a gun license to him, the official said.

 

A First Information Report was registered in June after Salman and his father Salim Khan received an anonymous letter threatening to kill them.

A team of Mumbai Police had interrogated Bishnoi in Delhi in connection with the case, the official added.

Notably, Salman and his father Salim Khan had received a death threat on June 5, days after Punjabi singer Sidhu Moose Wala was shot dead in Punjab's Mansa district on May 29.

Sidhu Moose Wala was shot dead by unidentified assailants in Jawaharke village of Punjab's Mansa district on May 29.
