Salman Khan receives threat calls

Bollywood superstar Salman Khan has received calls from an unknown person threatening to kill him. The anonymous caller made two threat calls within 15 hours on Mumbai police control number on February 16.

The police control room received the threat calls against Salman from Marine Drive in South Mumbai and Kurar police station area in Malad East. Police are trying to track the caller even as a case has been filed against an unknown person in Azad Maidan police station, according to a report in the Asian Age.

According to the report, police has managed to trace the phone number from where the hoax call was made, but it has not identified the person as the call was made from a public phone.

"We received a call from the control room about the incident and were informed that it was a PCO number from Marine Drive area," an officer from the Marine drive police station said.

"The PCO is situated near a furniture shop. We had checked the CCTV footage situated in the same area but none of the CCTV covers the PCO so we could not trace the caller. We called Salman and asked whether he received any threat call but he said that he has not received any threat calls so far," the officer added.

Police suspect that the unknown caller was in an inebriated condition when he threatened to shoot the ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ actor. "Our crime branch team is also working on the case to trace the caller and to find out the reason behind his threat call. We will soon find the person and take action against him," a senior officer was quoted by the daily.

Meanwhile, police have decided to review the 50-year-old actor's security following the threat calls.
