Salman Khan Appears Before Jodhpur Court For His Hearing In Arms Act Case
Reported By 04 Aug 2017
Bollywood superstar Salman Khan on Friday made an appearance in Jodhpur Sessions Court in connection with illegal arms act case. However, next hearing in the case will be held on October 5 this year.
The 51-year-old star was charged in October 1998, with possessing an unlicensed .22 rifle and a .32 revolver and using them to poach two black bucks at Jodhpur's Kankani village.
Although he was acquitted by chief judicial magistrate's court due to insufficient evidence on January 18, the prosecution appealed against the decision and the appeal was scheduled for hearing on Friday.
During the shooting of Sooraj Barjatya's movie, 'Hum Saath Saath Hain' in 1998, Salman allegedly went on a shooting expedition along with actors Saif Ali Khan, Neelam, Sonali Bendre and Tabu, killing two blackbucks in Kankani village.
Following protests by the local Bishnoi community, a case was later filed against Salman and the other actors.
