Nehra, 28, had gone to Mumbai for a recce as part of the plan; he clicked photos of the actor’s home and the routes leading to it on his mobile phone.
“In the first week of May, Sampat Nehra was in Mumbai and surveyed the house of Salman Khan and the time when he comes out in the balcony of his house to wave to his fans.

Nehra belongs to Rajasthan’s Bishnoi community which doggedly pursued the 20-year-old blackbuck poaching case against the actor; in April, the 52-year-old star was sentenced to five years in jail for killing two blackbucks in 1998 while shooting for the film “Hum Saath Saath Hain”. He was released on bail after spending two nights in prison at the Jodhpur Central Jail.
Nehra was arrested by the Special Task Force of the Haryana Police on June 6.
