The Police Control Room received a call on April 10, from a man who identified himself as Roki Bhai from Rajasthan's Jodhpur. He threatened to kill the actor on April 30.

Reportedly, security has been stepped up outside Khan's house. The actor has already been provided Y+ category security due to a perceived threat to his life and has a bulletproof vehicle for his safety. Salman recently bought a bulletproof SUV amid threats from gangster Lawrence Bishnoi. He was seen arriving in the bulletproof SUV at the trailer launch of his upcoming film 'Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan' on April 10. The film is all set to hit the theatres on April 21.
Last month, the Mumbai police apprehended a man from Rajasthan in connection with an email threatening Salman Khan that was received at the latter's office in Mumbai. The man, a resident of Rajasthan, was nabbed by the team of Bandra police station and was brought to Mumbai, an official said.
The complaint about the threat e-mail was lodged at the Bandra police station by one Prashant Gunjalkar, who according to police, frequently visits the Bandra-based residence of Salman Khan and runs an artist management company.
According to the email, Goldy Brar — a Canada-based gangster and a close associate of Bishnoi — wanted to talk to Salman Khan. It referred to Bishnoi’s interview in which the jailed gangster issued the death threat. If the actor wanted to close the matter, it read, he should talk to Brar “face to face”. It also warned of “consequences” in the future.
