According to ANI, The two suspects, who fled Mumbai following the shooting incident outside Salman Khan's residence, have been arrested in Bhuj city, Gujarat, and will be brought back to Mumbai for further inquiry on Tuesday. They will be presented in court on Tuesday afternoon. The two accused are identified as Vicky Gupta and Sagar Pal.

Pictures of the suspects have emerged on social media.




For those unaware, two men on a motorcycle fired four shots outside Galaxy Apartments in Bandra around 5 am on Sunday before fleeing the scene. Police confirmed Salman Khan's presence at home during the incident, with no injuries reported.

After the shooting, the suspects abandoned their motorcycle near a church, walked a distance, and then took an autorickshaw to Bandra railway station. From there, they boarded a train to Santacruz station and hired another autorickshaw. Anmol Bishnoi, brother of Lawrence Bishnoi, claimed responsibility for the incident on social media.

The Bishnoi gang has a history of violence, with alleged involvement in the assassination of Punjabi singer Sidhu Moosewala as well. In a Facebook post made almost five hours after the incident, Anmol had written, "We want peace. If the only decision against oppression is war, then so be it. Salman Khan we have only shown you a trailer so that you understand the magnitude of our strength and do not test it. 

The on-the-run gangster concluded his note and said, "Also, we have two pet dogs named after Dawood Ibrahim and Chhota Shakeel, whom you consider your Gods. I don't want to say much. Jai Shri Ram!" Salman Khan is yet to react to the incident.

Last year, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) said that the Tiger 3 actor topped the list of 10 main targets that jailed gangster Lawrence Bishnoi, citing the actor's 1998 black buck hunting incident, which according to the gangster, offended the Bishnoi community.
