Salman Khan met Mumbai Police Commissioner Vivek Phansalkar last month following which he received the arms license. He had applied for self-protection following threat letters that he had received recently.
The actor and his father Salim Khan had received a death threat in June, just days after singer Sidhu Moosewala was shot dead near Punjab on May 29. Gangster Lawrence Bishnoi, who is allegedly the mastermind behind the killing of Moosewala, had issued a threat to Salman Khan. He had been on Bishnoi’s radar ever since the actor’s alleged involvement in the blackbuck poaching case of 1998.
