New Delhi, April 15

The police are questioning the owner of the motorcycle allegedly used by unidentified persons in the firing outside Bollywood superstar Salman Khan’s house in suburban Bandra here, an official said on Monday.

The motorcycle, which was abandoned near Mount Mary Church, a little over a kilometre from the actor's house, was registered in the name of a man living in the Panvel area of Navi Mumbai, the official said.

A team from the crime branch went there and brought the vehicle owner and two others for questioning.

The man had recently sold the two-wheeler to someone else, assistant commissioner of police Panvel Ashok Rajput said. 

Two persons fired four rounds outside Bandra's Galaxy Apartments, where the actor resides, around 5 am and fled from the spot.

One of the shooters identified as Vishal aka Rahul, a resident of Gurugram, has over six criminal cases, including murder, registered against him in Haryana and Delhi.

“We have mounted technical and physical surveillance to get the clue regarding the accused,” a source in the Special Cell said.

As per sources, Vishal was recently involved in the killing of a bookie in Rohtak under the instructions of jailed gangster Lawrence Bishnoi.

Additionally, sources indicate Vishal's involvement in another murder at a roadside restaurant in Rohtak on February 29 this year.

According to officials, the suspects abandoned the vehicle near the church, walked some distance and took an autorickshaw to Bandra railway station.

They boarded a train going towards Borivali but alighted at Santacruz railway station and walked out, they said.

For the past several years, Salman Khan and his family have been facing death threats from certain Punjab-based mafia groups like the Bishnoi gang.

Salman Khan and his father Salim Khan have been issued death threats in different ways, including dropping a letter to the family.

Following the multiple threats to the Mumbai-based actor, the city police have upgraded the security cover of Salman Khan, plus issued him a permit for a gun licence, and last year, the actor acquired a new bullet-proof SUV as additional protection to move around.
