The Supreme Court on Friday issued notice to Bollywood actor Salman Khan against his acquittal in Chinkara poaching case. The apex court agreed to hear the plea filed by Vasundhara Raje-led Rajasthan Government challenging Salman Khan’s acquittal in chinkara case.
On Tuesday, the Rajasthan government had said that it will file an appeal in the Supreme Court against the High Court’s decision acquitting Khan in two cases of chinkara poaching.
The Vasundhara Raje-led Rajasthan Government in October had approached the Supreme Court against Bollywood Salman Khan’s acquittal in two cases related to the chinkara poaching case.
In their appeal, the government had asked the top court to direct the superstar to surrender. They claim that Salman’s driver was not intentionally cross-examined by his lawyers.
The Rajasthan High Court on July 25 had acquitted Khan in the poaching case citing lack of evidences to incriminate him.
In 1998, Khan and seven others were accused of hunting and killing chinkara in two separate incidents.
