Karan Johar was on Lawrence Bishnoi’s gang’s target list and had intended to extort Rs. 5 crore from him

Karan Johar was on the extortion list of the Lawrence Bishnoi gang. According to reports, the gang aimed to extort Rs. 5 crore from Karan.

The Lawrence Bishnoi gang had a list of persons they sought to extort, including filmmaker Karan Johar. According to a police officer, Siddhesh Kamble, alias Mahakal, an accused member of the organization, revealed this to investigators. According to the news agency PTI, a senior official also stated that these claims had yet to be verified and that there was a potential that Siddhesh’s words were boasting. According to a police officer, he was a close aide of Santosh Jadhav, a suspect in the killing of musician Sidhu Moose Wala.

According to the investigation, Siddhesh supplied information about the Sidhu murder plot, naming Santosh and a man called Nagnath Suryavanshi as suspects. According to Siddhesh, the group planned to extort Rs. 5 crore from Karan Johar by threatening him. Vikram Brar, the brother of Canadian criminal Goldie Brar, allegedly discussed these intentions with him on the Instagram and Signal applications, according to his police statement.

A police officer told PTI, “With some accused, there is an element of bragging in their confessions. The motive behind bragging is to gain publicity and get bigger extortion amounts. This phenomenon is common in Punjab and other neighbouring states. They (gangsters) want their names to get associated with high-profile cases. Mahakal is a small fish. Vikram Brar told him about Karan Johar. Why Brar told this to Mahakal, who is just a foot soldier? Because Brar wants to increase his clout and impress youths like Mahakal.”
