Bigg Boss 10 host and the Bhai of entertainment industry, Salman Khan has finally taken a sigh of relief. The actor has got clean chit from Jodhpur court in Arms Act case from 1998. The case was related to Chinkara poaching case where he was charged for allegedly killing a blackbuck with a weapon whose license had expired.
The actor on Wednesday got acquitted in the Arms Act case, which was one of the four cases against him for poaching of Chinkara during shoot of the movie ‘Hum Saath Saath Hain’ in 1998. He got clean chit from the Rajasthan High Court in two cases of poaching of Chinkara while the trial of alleged poaching of two blackbucks is still on.
Like all the other cases against him, in this case also Salman Khan got acquitted due to unavailability of enough evidence against him. As there was no evidence that Salman Khan used the gun with the expired license, the Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM) Court of Jodhpur had to exonerate him.
Salman Khan said thanks to his fans for their support through a tweet on the micro blogging website Twitter.
Thank you for all the support and good wishes
