MUMBAI: A month prior to the arrest of two shooters for firing outside actor Salman Khan’s house, another plan had been hatched by the Lawrence Bishnoi gang to eliminate Khan at his Panvel farmhouse, say Navi Mumbai police.
TOI has managed to access the details of the investigation. A copy of the FIR filed at Panvel police station in Navi Mumbai shows that the jailed gangster Bishnoi, his Canada-based cousin Anmol Bishnoi, and accomplice Goldy Brar had plotted to kill the actor by sourcing sophisticated weapons including an AK-47, M-16 and AK-92 from a Pakistan-based weapon supplier.The objective was presumably to waylay his vehicle or storm the farmhouse, said police sources. It is not yet clear to investigators why a second plan was set into motion to fire at the actor’s Bandra residence.
Navi Mumbai police last week arrested four persons linked to the earlier plot and are looking for at least 15-20 other members of the Bishnoi gang who stayed in the vicinity of Khan’s farmhouse since Feb this year. The gang has been targeting him over his involvement in the killing of a black buck in 1998 in Rajasthan during the making of a film.
The arrested accused have been identified as Dhananjay Tapesingh alias Ajay Kashyap, Gaurav Bhatia alias Nahvi, Vaspi Khan alias Waseem Chikna and Rizwan Khan alias Javed Khan. The conspiracy came to light last month when senior inspector Nitin Thackeray received a tip-off that a few people were planning to carry out an attack on Khan’s farmhouse.
“We got to know recently after the Bandra shooting that Bishnoi had sent a few men to Navi Mumbai, namely Ajay Kashyap and others who went by the nicknames of Rocky Shooter, Satish Kaur and Sukha Shooter,” said an officer.
Bishnoi himself is an undertrial in Sabarmati jail in Gujarat. Police last week arrested four suspects who, in the course of investigations, said that Ajay Kashyap was communicating with a man identified only as Dogar, a contact based in Pakistan, through video conferencing.
