Today, 25 July 2016, Rajasthan High Court gave Clean chit to ‘Sultan’ Salman Khan. Salman Khan and seven others were in case of killing blackbuck and Chinkara in Rajasthan in 1998 during their film’s shooting. Salman Khan’s sister Alvira Khan has arrived in Rajasthan HC with their lawyer for the hearing.
Salman Khan Acquitted in both Blackbuck and Chinkara poaching cases. Salman had appealed to High Court challenging the lower court’s verdict that had handed him one and five years’ jail in the two separate cases of poaching in Rajasthan.
In February 2006, a case was filed against Salman Khan and other stars under the Wild Life Act for killing Chinkarat at Bhawad, Jodhpur. As per the case, the incident had taken place during Salman’s film Hum Saath Saath Hain in 1998. Salman Khan acquitted now but he was sentenced to one-year jail and a fine of Rs 5,000.
Salman Khan’s co-actors in Hum Saath Saath hain Saif Ali Khan, Sonali Bendre, Tabu and Neelam were also charged in Blackbuck, Chinkara poaching case.
Rajasthan High Court had sentenced him 5 years of jail in 2007 killing a blackbuck during the shooting of Hum Saath Saath Hain. Salman Khan had spent 6 days in Jodhpur central jail but then his sentence was terminated.
Later, the High Court dropped charges under Arms Act against him on actors’ appeal. Chinkara was killed at Bhawad on the outskirts of Jodhpur on September 26, 1998, and Blackbuck at Ghoda Farms on September 28, 1998.
In December 2012, HC again revised the dropped charges on Salman. In that, Salman Khan was charged with Section 9/51 of the Wildlife Protection Act. Blackbuck is a protected animal and hunting or poaching of the same is a punishable offence under law.
