The Mumbai Police made the sixth arrest in connection with the firing outside actor Salman Khan’s residence. The accused, also a member of Lawrence Bishnoi gang was nabbed by police from Haryana.

The accused, identified as Harpal Singh (34), a resident of Fatehabad in Haryana, was apprehended by a team of the Mumbai crime branch from his hometown on Monday evening, an official told PTI. Police brought Singh to Mumbai during the early hours of Tuesday and he is expected to be produced in court later on Tuesday. 

Police recently arrested the fifth accused in the case, Mohammad Rafiq Chaudhary, who had done recce outside the houses of two other actors apart from Salman Khan’s house. He shot a video of Khan's house and sent it to gangster Anmol Bishnoi.

On April 14, two motorbike-borne people opened fire outside Salman Khan's residence in the Bandra area of Mumbai. The police had so far arrested four people in connection with the incident.

Singh's name surfaced during the interrogation of accused Chaudhary, another Bishnoi gang member.

According to police, Singh had asked Chowdhary to conduct a recce around Khan's residence and also gave Rs 2-3 lakh to him.

Lawrence Bishnoi, currently lodged in the Sabarmati central prison in Gujarat's Ahmedabad, and his younger brother Anmol Bishnoi, who is believed to be in the US or Canada, have been named in the firing case.
