Bollywood superstar Salman Khan has received a handgun license from the Mumbai Police, sources on Monday said.

The actor requested the license in order to defend himself after receiving death threats in the form of letters from Lawrence Bishnoi’s gang members. He was granted the license after applying for it. According to media reports, Salman received the arms license after following the law.

Before the handgun license was granted, Salman’s background and criminal history were investigated. The police headquarters didn’t delete his file until after all of the usual process procedures had been completed.

“Actor Salman Khan has been issued an Arms license after he applied for a weapon license for self-protection in the backdrop of threat letters that he received recently,” said the Mumbai Police in an official statement.

The license was printed following Khan’s July meeting with Mumbai police commissioner Vivek Phansalkar, according to a senior IPS officer. According to reports, the actor applied for a gun not long after receiving the death threat.

According to recent reports, Salman upgraded to a bulletproof Land Cruiser after receiving the threat. It appears that the vehicle has armour and bulletproof glass.

News of Salman seeking a gun license broke last month when the Mumbai Police confirmed in a statement to ANI saying, “Actor Salman Khan applied for a weapon license for self-protection at the Mumbai CP office, after he recently received a threat letter.”
