Police suspect the student allegedly sent threatening messages to Salman Khan in the name of jailed gangster Goldy Brar in March.

A few days ago, Salman Khan received an email on one of his official IDs which stated that he should meet gangster Lawrence Bishnoi's aide Goldy Brar and sort out their differences once and for all, or be ready to face the consequences.

The police have initiated the process to bring the student back to India after he was identified as the sender of the email, the official added.

The investigation revealed the student hails from Haryana and is in the third year of a medical course.

The student is likely to return to India by the end of this year when his academic session ends in the UK, the official said.

The Mumbai Police recently nabbed a minor boy after he called up the control room and allegedly threatened to kill Salman Khan.

Salman Khan’s brushes with the law

The Bollywood star has been in legal trouble multiple times and had stints in jail too. Here are some of the incidents he has been involved in.

Hit-and-run case: Salman Khan's land cruiser rammed into the American Bakery in Bandra. A labourer, sleeping on the pavement, was killed and four others injured in the hit-and-run incident. In April 2018, a Mumbai court cancelled a bailable arrest warrant against Khan. Earlier, the Maharashtra government had appealed against his acquittal before the Supreme Court. 

Blackbuck poaching cases: Salman was accused of poaching two blackbucks in Kankani village in October 1998 when he was shooting for 'Hum Saath Saath Hai'. He was convicted on April 5, 2018 and later granted bail in the case.. He was also accused of poaching one blackbuck in Mathania on September 28 to 29, 2016. The Rajasthan HC acquitted him on July 25, 2016 and the challenge is pending in the Supreme Court.

Arms Act: Khan was accused of possessing a 0.22 rifle and 0.32 revolver with expired licenses used to hunt the blackbucks. He was acquitted in the case on January 18, 2017.
