JAIPUR: Rajasthan High Court on Monday acquitted Bollywood actor Salman Khan in the blackbuck and chinkara poaching cases.
Khan had earlier appealed before the High Court challenging the lower court’s verdict that had handed him one and five years’ imprisonment in the two separate cases of poaching.
Khan and seven others are accused of killing a blackbuck and chinkara in two separate incidents.
One of the animals was killed at Bhawad on the outskirts of Jodhpur on September 26, 1998, and the other at Ghoda Farms on September 28, 1998.
At that time, they were shooting for the film “Hum Sath Sath Hain”.
