Jodhpur court summons Salman Khan and Saif Ali Khan in February for poaching case

The Dabangg actor Salman Khan along with three others were today summoned by a local court to appear before Jodhpur court on 14 February facing charges in the Black Buck poaching case.

It is said by the defence counsel Hastimal Saraswat that the lower court had framed actor Salman Khan under sections of the Wildlife Act, the Arms Act and the IPC and the other actors including Saif Ali Khan, Tabbu, Sonali Bendre, Nilam, Dushyant Singh and Dinesh Gawre, were framed under the Wildlife act and the IPC.

The accused had then submitted a revision petition in the session court which discharged Salman from Section 27 (illegal possession of arms) of the Arms Act and 148 (rioting with deadly weapons) of IPC whereas the others were discharged of section 51 (causing harm to wildlife) of Wildlife Act and both under 147 (punishment for rioting) and 149 (unlawful assembly of persons) of IPC.

Hastimal Saraswat told media that the state govt had filed a revision in the Rajasthan High Court which upheld the decision of the session court in Salman Khan’s case and put section 149 of IPC against the other actors.

Meanwhile, it all happened in during the night of 1-2 October 1998 at Kankani village near Jodhpur during the shooting of the Bollywood movie Hum Saath Saath Hain, when two rare Black Bucks were allegedly poached.

However, actor Salman Khan was convicted and sentenced to 1-year and 5- year prison terms in separate cases of poaching of two Chinkaras at Bhawad and one Black Buck at Ghoda Farm (Mathania) on the intervening night of 26-27 September, 1998 and 28-29 September, 1998 respectively.
