The Rajasthan High Court in Jodhpur on Monday acquitted Salman Khan in the blackbuck and chinkara poaching cases.
The Dabangg Khan appealed before the high court challenging the lower court’s verdict that had handed him one and five years’ imprisonment, respectively, in the two separate cases of poaching.
The hearing was completed in these cases in the last week of May and the decision was reserved by the high court.
Along with Khan, seven others were 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”.
Earlier in the same case, Salman was lodged in Jodhpur jail.
