On August 15, police arrested the sharpshooter who has been hired by Lawerence Bishnoi to assassinate Salman Khan.
The arrested sharpshooter was involved in a murder case of a Faridabad resident as well. After murdering Praveen on June 24, the murderer rushed to Uttarakhand to remain underground for some time. Praveen used to run a ration depot in the local area.
Reports say he was one of the prominent members of the Lawrence Bishnoi gang. While interrogation, the murderer revealed that Bollywood actor Salman Khan was his next target.
At present, Bishnoi is serving his imprisonment in Rajasthan.
DCP Faridabad, Rajesh Duggal said- “During questioning, it has emerged that Rahul had traveled to Mumbai in January to conduct a recce for the murder of Salman Khan. He went to the actor’s house in Bandra for the purpose and stayed in the area for two days,” Source: Wion.
He continued and said- “He conducted this recce at the behest of Bishnoi and Sampat Nehra, another member of the gang, who had also conducted a recce to plan for the same crime before he was arrested in June 2018,” Source: Wion.
Following the investigation, Sampat Nehra has been arrested from Hyderabad for planning Salman Khan’s murder in 2018. Investigation reports say that Bishnoi handed over this job to Nehra a few years back.
DCP Duggal said- “Rahul conducted the recce on the directions of Bishnoi and later apprised him of the findings. However, they were unable to take their plan to the next stage because of the coronavirus outbreak,” Source: Wion.
“Between 2016 and 2018, he was working at the ESIC Hospital in Faridabad on a temporary basis. In 2018, he was arrested by the Crime Branch Badkhal for possession of an illegal weapon. After being released on bail, he joined the Bishnoi gang in August 2019,” he added. Source: Wion.
