Student Arrested For Sending Cab To ‘Pick Up Lawrence Bishnoi’ From Salman Khan’s House

Ghaziabad: A 21-year-old student was arrested for booking a cab and sending it to Salman Khan’s residence to “pick up Lawrence Bishnoi.”


This came days after bike-borne men fired four rounds of bullets outside Salman Khan’s home in Mumbai’s Bandra.

Lawrence Bishnoi is a jailed gangster who has been targeting Salman Khan allegedly due to the 1998 blackbuck hunting incident. His brother Anmol Bishnoi had claimed responsibility for the shooting incident.

On Thursday, a taxi driver asked the security guard at the gate of Galaxy Apartments where Lawrence Bishnoi stays. He informed the guard on duty at Salman’s family house that he had come to pick up Lawrence.

On hearing the name of Lawrence Bishnoi, police personnel on duty took the cab driver into custody, and handed him over to Bandra Police.

The driver told police that he was asked by the person who booked the cab through an aggregator service to pick up someone called Lawrence Bishnoi from Galaxy Apartments. The driver claimed he had no idea that the address he was given was that of Salman’s residence and Lawrence Bishnoi is actually a gangster.

On investigation, Bandra Police found out that the person who had booked the cab was a 21-year-old student named Rohit Tyagi, who lives in Uttar Pradesh’s Ghaziabad.

A case was lodged against Tyagi and he was arrested and produced before a court.

He has been sent to police custody for two days.
