The official detailed the gang members' recce around the farmhouse and revealed that they had rented a room near the location for over a month.
"Kapil Pandit, Santosh Jadhav, Sachin Vishnoi Thapan had come to stay in a rented room in Panvel in the Waze area of Mumbai. There is a farmhouse of Salman Khan in Panvel, so on the way to the same farmhouse, Lawrence's shooters had rented a room and stayed there for about one and a half months", Dhaliwal said
The report noted that before Sidhu Moose Wala's murder, the gang had developed a "plan B" to kill Salman Khan. “Following the instructions by Bishnoi to keep collecting more information, they did the recce. But during that period, they were more after Sidhu. Due to that, basic groundwork was done but the syndicate's effort was on Sidhu who was killed on 29 May after several attempts," the official added.
