According to the news portal, the actor was questioned about any possible connection to the gangsters Lawrence Bishnoi and Goldy Brar, who are reportedly being probed in the case. “I know Lawrence Bishnoi just like everyone else. Don’t know about Goldy Brar,” the actor reportedly told the cops.

Salman was also asked about any possible suspects who would want to cause him harm. To this, he said, “I have no reason to doubt anyone.”
Besides the note threatening to kill him and his father, Salim Khan, in the same manner as Punjabi rapper Sidhu Moose Wala, Salman was reportedly asked if he received any more threat calls, notes or messages. While the star allegedly ‘didn’t give a direct reply’ to the same, he mentioned that neither he nor anyone in his family receive any death threat recently.
The police are reportedly not ruling out the possibility of the death threat being nothing more than a prank.
As far as Lawrence’s involvement in the case is concerned, ANI reported in a tweet that the gangster has denied the claims. The tweet read, “Delhi Police questioned jailed gangster Lawrence Bishnoi in connection with the threat letter to actor Salman Khan. He said that he has no hand in this matter and does not know who issued that letter.”
As per the latest reports, a Mumbai Police team is likely to leave for New Delhi to question Bishnoi, especially since he had previously vowed to kill Salman after the actor was accused in the Black Buck poaching case of 1998 in Rajasthan.
