Salman Khan firing case is unfolding many new developments after the Mumbai crime branch investigation with the two accused is being undertaken. In the latest updates, the crime branch has learnt that the shooter, Sagar Pal, took up gun-firing training from somewhere near his village in the west Champaran district of Bihar. Investigation has also revealed that the accused had also conducted a recce of Salman Khan's Panvel farmhouse 4-5 days before the firing in Mumbai. However, the plan to fire was already decided to be undertaken in Mumbai itself. It is clear from the preliminary investigation that their motive was to spread terror... Firing at Salman's house in Mumbai gives more media coverage and publicity.

Both the accused, Vicky Gupta and Sagar Pal, were produced before Mumbai's Killa court on Tuesday and the two accused will remain in police custody till April 25. Police sought 14 days of police custody of both the accused.
