As Salman Khan gears up for a mega-release of his upcoming film Race 3 on Friday, there is news that his life is in danger. Haryana Police’s Special Task Force recently arrested shooter Sampat Nehra who was assigned to attack and shoot the superstar. 

The police now have news that allies of Sampat are still in the open and will carry out the impending task. The cops fear that these people can still target Salman, and have, therefore, alerted the Mumbai police about the same. There are reportedly three other shooters.

The Haryana Police also revealed that the trio had planned to free Sampat on Monday when he was being taken to the court. They added, “Due to this we made elaborate arrangements and changed the vehicles in which Sampat was being taken at regular intervals. The security was also beefed up so that the gangsters are unable to carry out their actions.”
After the alert, the Mumbai police have beefed up the security around Salman.  
A senior police official said that Salman is provided with personal bodyguards all the time, and also, armed policemen are stationed around his apartment and sets.
