Crucial audio recording unveiled in Salman Khan house firing case

The Crime Branch, investigating the shooting outside Salman Khan’s residence, has discovered a crucial audio recording from one of the accused. In the recording, the accused is heard urging Anmol Bishnoi to take care of the shooters and their families in case of their arrest. This finding comes at a sensitive time for the Crime Branch, following the suicide of one of the main accused directly linked with Lawrence Bishnoi, inside the lockup. The Crime Branch believes that this audio recording could serve as crucial evidence linking Lawrence Bishnoi’s brother, Anmol, who is wanted in the case and suspected to be moving between three countries: America, Canada, and Australia.

According to sources within the Crime Branch, crucial evidence was discovered with the accused Vicky Gupta, who was involved in the shooting outside Salman Khan’s residence last month, along with Sagar Pal. The Crime Branch sources revealed that they found an audio recording on Vicky Gupta’s mobile, seized in Bhuj at the time of their arrest. The mobile phone contained a crucial recording sent to Anmol. Although the officer didn’t disclose the full content of the audio tape, they stated that it could be a very crucial piece of evidence linking Lawrence’s brother.

“In the audio tape, the accused can be heard urging Bishnoi to take care of them and their family in case of arrest. They seem to be scared, indicating they were not previously involved in any criminal activity before this incident,” said an officer.

The police also said that Anuj Thapan, one of the arms suppliers in the case, was a very crucial link to Lawrence and was named as accused in three different cases along with Bishnoi, including firing and extortion. But since his death, it has been difficult for authorities to link the case with Bishnoi. The audio tape found in the case is now crucial evidence. The Bishnoi brothers have already been made accused in the case, and the Crime Branch is likely to take custody of Lawrence, who is locked up in Sabarmati Central jail in Gujarat.
