Mumbai: Police have launched an investigation into an anonymous threatening letter sent Sunday to Bollywood actor Salman Khan and his father, writer Salim Khan. It is not appropriate to comment on where this letter came from. However, we are investigating, Police Commissioner Sanjay Pandey said.
The new Police Commissioner’s Office at Mahatma Phule Mandai was inaugurated on Monday. Speaking to reporters here, Sanjay Pandey said writer Salim Khan was touring the Band Sand area of Bandra on Sunday. An anonymous letter threatening to kill Salman Khan and Salim Khan was found in a bank there. The police are investigating the matter. The investigation is moving in the right direction. Increasing the security of Salim Khan and Salman Khan is an internal matter. We are working accordingly. Crackdowns have been ordered against illegal dance bars and breweries, Pandey said.
Sanjay Pandey retires after three weeks
Sanjay Pandey took over as Police Commissioner in February 2022. He went on to make several major changes to the police force. He launched the ‘Sunday Street’ campaign for citizens. He also reduced the workday of police officers and agents to eight hours. Speaking in this context, Sanjay Pandey said that these decisions were made during my tenure as Commissioner. If deemed appropriate by officials who take over as Commissioner afterward, it will also be implemented in the future.
Helmet Enforcement Compliance
Helmets have been made compulsory for two-wheelers in Mumbai and their fellow travelers. Since June 10, the police have called on all cyclists and commuters in Mumbai to follow the rules related to helmets. Riding a bicycle without a helmet is punishable by a fine of Rs 500/- and suspension of the driver’s license for three months. Therefore, the decision on the helmet will be implemented, explained Sanjay Pandey.
