Mumbai: The Mumbai Police has granted an arms license to superstar Salman Khan following his application seeking it for self-protection after he and his father Salim Khan received threat letters.
The license was issued after completing all formalities and the document was collected by the actor’s representative from the Commissioner Office , sources said
The actor and his father and veteran scriptwriter Salim Khan got death threats early June, just days after singer rapper and politician Sidhu Moosewala was shot dead near Punjab’s Mansa.
The authorities had started the necessary investigation after Khan met the Mumbai Police Commissioner last month.
The actor visited the Mumbai Police headquarters late last month to meet with Police Commissioner Vivek Phansalkar for the gun licence. He wanted to own a gun to protect himself and his family, the sources said.
