He had sent Sampat to Mumbai to survey Galaxy Apartments and the daily routine of the ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan‘ in order to plan an attack on the actor.

As per sources, “In the first week of May, Sampat Nehra was in Mumbai and surveyed the house of Salman Khan and the timing when he comes out in the balcony of his house to wave to his fans.
