Actor Salman Khan Acquitted Of Arms Act Violation And Poaching Of Two Black Bucks
Bollywood actor Salman Khan was acquitted of all charges in the Arms Act Case against him in the alleged poaching of two black bucks by a court in Rajasthan’s Jodhpur.
The film star got the benefit of doubt and was declared “not guilty”. A case was registered against him under the Arms Act in October 1998 for alleged use and possession of arms with an expired license during the alleged poaching of two black bucks in Kankani village near Jodhpur, Rajasthan.
The Chief Judicial Magistrate said that Salman had a valid license for possessing firearms and only its renewal was needed. Hence, he should be prosecuted under section 21 for not getting the license renewed. The forest department had filed cases under the sections 3/25 and 3/27 when Salman was in Jodhpur for the shooting of his film “Hum Saath Saath Hain”.
All the other co-stars of this 1998 super hit have been summoned by the court to record their statements.
Later, Salman took to twitter to thank his fans for their love and prayers.
