Salman Khan at Jodhpur court for statement


For the 17-year-old trial in an Arms Act case against him, the district and session trial court is hearing a case of alleged illegal possession of arms against the actor in connection with blackbuck poaching.

According to reports, the actor has already landed at the Jodhpur airport. Earlier, the court had summoned him for recording his statements. Khan had appeared in the court on April 29 last year in 2015 and pleaded his innocence.

The case under Arms Act was registered after the weapons, allegedly used by him for hunting down two blackbucks in 1998, had their licences expired.

While a case against him for poaching a blackbuck near Jodhpur’s Kankani is still underway, the forest department filed a separate case under the Arms Act. This was during the time Salman Khan was shooting for the super hit movie ‘Hum Saath Saath Hain’ and in Kankani village, Rajasthan.
