A Jodhpur sessions court pronounced its judgement today in the black buck hunting case where Salman Khan was one of the prime accused. The court reportedly acquitted the actor of all charges in the Arms Act case against him in the alleged poaching of two black bucks.
Salman was accused for keeping and using fire arms with an expired licence in the poaching of black bucks in Kankani village near Jodhpur in October 1998 during the shooting of Hum Sath Sath Hai. A case was filed against him under sections 3/25 and 3/27 of the Arms Act and if convicted, he would have faced an imprisonment for up to seven years. However, Chief Judicial Magistrate, Jodhpur announced him not guilty as the prosecution reportedly failed to provide any conclusive evidence against him.
Apart from Salman, Saif Ali Khan, Sonali Bendre, Tabu and Neelam were also accused in the case as they all were present when the alleged incident occurred.
