Lawrence Bishnoi, arrested for plotting the murder of Indian singer Sidhu Musewala, has issued another threat to Bollywood superstar Salman Khan from jail.

According to Indian media, Lawrence Bishnoi allegedly threatened, saying that his community is angry with Salman Khan over the black buck killing issue because he has brought shame to us.

Bishnoi said in his statement that a case was registered against Salman Khan for killing blackbuck but he did not apologise, if he still does not apologise, be prepared to suffer the consequences.

According to Indian media, Lawrence Bishnoi urged Salman to go to the temple of his religious guru Jambeshwar (Jambaji) and ask for forgiveness. If our community forgives him, I will not say anything to him.

It should be noted that Lawrence Bishnoi did not threaten Salman Khan for the first time. Earlier last year too, he had threatened to kill the Bollywood actor.

What is Lawrence Bishnoi’s problem with Salman Khan?

According to reports, on July 10 last year, Lawrence Bishnoi had threatened that he and his community would never forgive Salman Khan for poaching a rare blackbuck. Salman Khan publicly apologized for his actions.

According to Lawrence Bishnoi, his community considers the black buck to be an incarnation of their religious guru Lord Jambeshwar (Jambaji), so the court will not finalize the conviction or acquittal of Salman Khan in the case, if Salman Khan and his father Salim Khan Jamba. He can change his mind if he goes to the temple and apologizes to him, otherwise the Bishnoi community will kill him.

Blackbuck hunting case against Salman Khan

Bollywood superstar Salman Khan is still facing past cases and is still serving the trial for poaching a rare blackbuck in 1998.

The Salman Khan case has been the center of attention for the past two decades. Salman Khan is accused of hunting two rare blackbucks in a village in Rajasthan during the shooting of the film ‘Hum Saath Saath Hain’.

According to media reports, Salman Khan was charged under the Indian Wildlife Protection Act, 1972.

Not only Salman Khan but co-stars Saif Ali Khan, Sonali Bendre, Neelam and Tabu were also held guilty in this case.

The court acquitted all the accused in the case except Salman Khan due to insufficient evidence, while two more accused besides the Bollywood superstar were also found guilty for being part of hunting of rare animals.

In 2018, a Jodhpur court sentenced Salman Khan to 5 years in prison, but he was later granted bail. Now all the applications regarding this case of Salman Khan have been transferred to the Rajasthan High Court.
