Salman Khan Arms Act Case: A Jodhpur court has finally pronounced its verdict. Bollywood actor Salman Khan, who was guilty of carrying fire arms with expired licence during a hunting trip 18 years ago, has been acquitted of all charges. The Jodhpur court let the actor off after giving him a “benefit of doubt”, informed prosecution counsel Bhawani Singh Bhati.
While speaking about the upcoming hearing in the blackbuck case on 25 January, Bhati said that the “facts and circumstances were different in this case, so we hope it will not affect the judgement of that case”.
Khan’s lawyer said that the actor was acquitted “after the prosecution failed to provide conclusive evidence”.
Yesterday night Salman Khan accompanied by his sister Alvira arrived in Jodhpur for the hearing of his 18 year old case. The case involves the killing of black bucks allegedly when Salman Khan and his co-stars Saif Ali Khan, Sonali Bendre, Neelam and Tabu, were shooting for a film in the forests near Jodhpur in 1998.
