Threat to Salman Khan: Mumbai Police refutes accused's claim of links with Bishnoi gang

Threat to Salman Khan: Mumbai Police refutes accused's claim of links with Bishnoi gang

Mumbai, Jun 21 (UNI) In latest development in case of alleged threat to Bollywood superstar Salman Khan by a 25-year-old student from Rajasthan in a YouTube video, the city police said on Friday that initial investigations revealed that accused's claims are fake, saying that he does not have any links with the Lawrence Bishnoi gang.
Notably, last week, the city Crime Branch arrested accused Banwarilal Laturlal Gujar, a first-year BA student, who had allegedly shot the video on the channel “Are Chhodo Yaar” in his hostel.
According to police, the complaint was filed after a viewer noticed a video where a person, speaking in Hindi, claimed association with gang members ‘Goldy Brar, Vivek Bhaiya, Rohit, and Jitin’, and issued threats to Salman Khan.
Police recovered the mobile phone from the accused and found that Gujar was using 19 email addresses and the names of Bishnoi gang members to increase his channel’s followers and views.
Based on the video, the South Cyber Police registered a case under sections 506(2) (criminal intimidation), 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of peace), and 34 (acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), as well as section 66(d)(cheating by personation using computer resource) of the Information Technology (IT) Act.
