Mumbai, Ap 16: In a significant development, the Mumbai Police have apprehended two persons suspected to be involved in the shooting incident outside Bollywood actor Salman Khan's residence, originating from Gujarat, in the early hours of Tuesday, according to official sources.

The pair, apprehended within a span of 48 hours, is currently en route to Mumbai and will be presented before a court for remand later today.

Following the firing, which occurred at around 5 a.m. on April 14 at Galaxy Apartments in Bandra West, the suspects fled to Bhuj, Gujarat, where they were tracked down.

Earlier on Monday, the Navi Mumbai Police had detained two individuals associated with the motorcycle, bearing a Raigad registration number, used by the assailants.

The motorcycle, captured on CCTV footage with a Raigad registration plate, is under investigation to determine if it was sold, reported missing, or stolen.

Authorities, employing 15 investigative teams, are also exploring potential threats in Raigad, where the Khan family owns a sprawling farmhouse in Panvel.

Shortly after the shooting, Anmol Bishnoi, sibling of notorious gangster Lawrence Bishnoi, claimed responsibility for the attack via a chilling social media post.

Referring to the incident as a 'first and final warning' to Salman Khan, Bishnoi's post hinted at future direct targeting of the actor, warning that the next time "bullets won't be fired at walls or an empty home."

For years, Salman Khan and his family have been subjected to death threats from certain Punjab-based mafia factions, including the Bishnoi gang, following the 1998 blackbuck poaching incident in Rajasthan.

Over the past couple of years, the actor and his father, Salim Khan, have received death threats through various means, including letters delivered to the family.
