Lawrence Bishnoi and Salman Khan: Gangster Lawrence Bishnoi has reportedly revealed that he made all preparations to "murder" Bollywood actor Salman Khan in 2018. For this he had also bought a special rifle, for which he had paid Rs 4 lakh. Lawrence Bishnoi is currently in the custody of Punjab Police in connection with the murder of Punjabi singer Sidhu Musewala. Before that, Delhi Police had questioned him. Sources in the Special Cell of Delhi Police also told Lawrence the reason for killing Salman. He reportedly said that he was angry with Salman Khan over the hunting of chinkaras as chinkaras are dear to the Bishnoi community in Haryana, Rajasthan and Punjab.In 1998, during the shooting of the film 'Hum Saath Saath Hain' in Jodhpur, Rajasthan, there was a case of chinkara poaching against Salman Khan. Salman was sentenced to five years in jail by a Jodhpur court in April 2018 for killing two blackbucks. Salman has challenged the sentence in the upper court. In this case, Salman also had to stay in Jodhpur jail for some time. Later he was shifted to Bharatpur Jail.Lawrence Bishnoi allegedly confessed in police interrogation that he had sent messages to Sampat Nehra, a resident of Rajgarh, to kill Salman Khan. Nehra was absconding at that time. According to sources, Lawrence told that Sampat Nehra was sent to Mumbai to kill Salman. He also did Reiki around the actor's house. But Nehra had only one pistol. He did not have a long-range rifle. Because of this, he could not attack Salman.Lawrence reportedly told the police that it was after this that he decided to buy the RK Spring rifle. According to Lawrence, he had ordered a person named Dinesh Dagar to buy this rifle. For this a payment of Rs 4 lakh was also made. This payment was made to Dagar's partner Anil Pandey. However, in 2018, this rifle was recovered by the police from Dagar's possession.Lawrence Bishnoi has been after Salman Khan for a long time. Last month it was reported that three men of Lawrence Bishnoi gang had threatened Salman Khan and his father Salim Khan in a letter. It was reportedly said that his fate would also be met like Sidhu Musewala. Sidhu was assassinated on May 29 in Mansa, Punjab by indiscriminately firing.
