Lavinder Kumar Bishnoi Beef With Salman Khan Explained
Lavinder Kumar Bishnoi is the father of the Indian gangster Lawrence Bishnoi, who once threatened to kill Bollywood actor Salman Khan. The incident came into light recently following the murder of the Indian rapper Sidhu Moose Wala.
The Punjabi gangster threatened to kill Salman when he was arrested in 2018. He openly said that he was going to kill the Bollywood actor for his role in the poaching of the endangered Indian antelope, Blackbuck.
On April 5, 2018, Salman Khan was convicted in the Blackbuck poaching case and was sentenced to five years in imprisonment by the Jodhpur court. He was convicted of killing the endangered species in 1998 in a forest near Jodhpur during the filming of the movie Hum Sath Sath Hain. The actor is currently out on bail, pending an appeal.
Why Did Lawrence Bishnoi Try To Murder The Actor?
Lawrence belongs to the Bishnoi tribe, who regard Blackbuck as a sacred animal and are very concerned about the antelopes. He threatened to murder Salman Khan due to his involvement in the poaching of the animal in 1998.
