'We will finish Lawrence Bishnoi': Eknath Shinde tells Salman Khan over firing incident

Mumbai/IBNS: Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde met actor Salman Khan on Tuesday afternoon days after shots were fired outside the superstar's home in Mumbai's Bandra.

Security around the actor's home was tightened as the Chief Minister arrived.

Khan stepped out to greet the Chief Minister and escorted him into his home.

Shinde met and shook hands with the actor's father, noted screenplay writer Salim Khan, politician Baba Siddiqui and his son Zeeshan.

"The government is with you, I have told Salman Khan. Both the accused have been arrested. They will be interrogated. We will get to the root of the case. Nobody will be spared. Nobody should targeted this way," Eknath Shinde told reporters outside the actor's home.

"No gang or gang war will be allowed. We won't allow this to happen. We will finish (Lawrence) Bishnoi," he added.

On Sunday morning, gunshots were fired outside the Bollywood actor's Mumbai home.

According to reports, two unidentified men on a motorcycle fired five rounds in the air outside Khan's Bandra home at 5 AM before fleeing from the scene.

However, soon after several media reports claimed that the firing was indeed a publicity stunt.

The two individuals suspected of carrying out the shooting are believed to have ties to the Lawrence Bishnoi gang.

The police have seized DVRs from all CCTV cameras outside Khan's residence which caught the accused on their bike.

They said a total of four bullets were fired, with one live round recovered, likely dropped during the weapon's locking mechanism.

A bullet also hit the first floor of the building where Khan resides, police said.

The Mumbai Police has launched a probe into the incident and is trying to track down the miscreants who fired the shots.
