Bollywood actor Salman Khan has once again received a death threat allegedly from Lawrence Bishnoi gang. This is the second recent incident in which the actor has been threatened. The Bandra Police have registered an FIR in the matter and have begun an investigation in the matter, police sources said. 


According to the official sources, a complaint was received by the Bandra Police on Saturday from a friend of Salman Khan, who has been known to him for past many years. The complainant told the police that in the afternoon an email was received at his office mentioning the name of Salman Khan. The content of the email mentioned about a recent interview of jailed gangster Lawrence Bishnoi.


Bishnoi's name had cropped up during the murder case of rapper and singer Sidhu Moose Wala. He was later arrested in the case and has been lodged in jail. 


When contacted, a police official confirmed about the fresh threat to the actor and said that an offence has been registered by the police.

The sender of the email, at the bottom mentioned about threatening the actor.

In the matter, the police have booked three people and are further investigating the case, the police said.

Salman's father Salim Khan had earlier received a threat letter written in Hindi on June 5 last year. A complaint was filed with the Mumbai Police that had registered an FIR in the matter. The Mumbai Police had then said that Salim Khan was on a morning walk at Bandstand in Bandra when he came across the letter threatening Salman Khan. The letter which had only a few lines written also mentioned Sidhu Moose Wala's murder.
