Man arrested from Allahabad for threatening to leak Salman Khan’s contact number

While fans are the most important part of the celebrity’s life, they sometimes also become the source of problems when they try to enter their personal space. A similar thing happened with Bollywood’s Dabangg Khan Salman as a man threatened his staff to disclose the actor’s contact number. An FIR was filed by the staff three days before and now the man has been arrested from Allahabad on Sunday. 

According to the reports, the arrested man had called up the actor’s aide a few days ago when he [Shera] was in Mumbai, and had asked for the actor’s number. As the actor’s staffer refused to part with the number, the two got into an argument on phone. A police source told TOI late on Sunday that their team is expected to reach Mumbai late night. “The motive of the threatening call will be clear once they get here and interrogate the arrested man,” said the source. “We suspect that something went wrong between the accused and the actor’s employee although the two are not even acquainted with one another. The accused got hold of the staffer’s cellpone number through social media.” The accused has been booked under the Indian Penal Code sections 504 (intentional insult) and 506 (criminal intimidation).

Additional superintendent of police of Allahabad city, Brijesh Kumar Srivastava, confirmed to TOI that a team of Mumbai police had picked up Shera. “He was wanted in connection with a case registered at Bandra police station. The Mumbai police had not consulted us about the operation,” said Srivastava.

On the other hand, superstar Salman Khan is busy shooting for his upcoming film Bharat in Punjab. The actress is accompanied by Katrina Kaif who plays the role of Salman’s love interest in the film. Helmed by Ali Abbas Zafar, Bharat is being produced by Atul Agnihotri, Bhushan Kumar and Salman himself. The movie also stars Disha Patani as Salman’s sister and Trapeze artist, Tabu and Sunil Grover. The movie is slated for release on June 5, 2019.
