A case has been registered against an unknown person who threatened to shoot Bollywood star Salman Khan. The unknown person called police control number and repeatedly threatened to kill the actor, The Asian Age reports.

The call was made Feb.16 from Marine Drive in South Mumbai and Kurar police station area in Malad East. Police from both the locations are trying to track the caller, while the Azad Maidan police registered a case against the unknown person. Police have managed to trace the phone number and the exact location, but the person who made the calls has not been identified yet.

"We received a call from the control room about the incident and were informed that it was a PCO number from Marine Drive area," an officer from the Marine drive police station told The Asian Age.

"The PCO is situated near a furniture shop. We had checked the CCTV footage situated in the same area but none of the CCTV covers the PCO so we could not trace the caller. We called Salman and asked whether he received any threat call but he said that he has not received any threat calls so far," he added.

The police suspect that the person who called and threatened saying "Salman Khan ko main goliyan maarunga (I will shoot Salman Khan)," was drunk. 

"Our crime branch team is also working on the case to trace the caller and to find out the reason behind his threat call. We will soon find the person and take action against him," a senior officer told the daily.

Meanwhile, police have decided to review the "Sultan" actor's security after the threat calls, Press Trust of India reports.
