In January, the actor was threatened by Lawrence Bishnoi that the actor will be killed in Jodhpur. The threat was in regard to the Blackbuck killing case of 1998, in which Salman was convicted in April this year. The Bishnoi community looks up to the Blackbucks as a symbol of their religious leader, Guru Bhagwan Jambeshwar and were greatly upset by the killing of their revered animal. 

The criminal has been wanted in 12 murder cases, six attempt-to-murder cases, two extortion cases and five dacoity cases.
