Salman Khan appeared before court in Jodhpur this Friday for the Black Buck Poaching case. The actor has been charged of poaching two chinkaras at Bhawad as well as killing black buck at Ghoda Farm in the year 1998 while shooting for the film Hum Saath Saath Hai. He was dressed in a T-shirt and a jacket and sported sunglasses. Mr Khan is reportedly there to request that the court not schedule a hearing that might clash with his sister Arpita’s wedding next week.
The identification procedure is still going in the court for which Salman Khan had to make an appearance before the law. Black buck is an endangered animal and killing it is considered quite offensive in Hindu tradition. When the actor was sentenced for the charges of killing the animal quite a lot of people were against him for the same reason.
There are reportedly ten more prosecution witnesses who have to appear before the court for being involved in the black buck case. His co-stars of the movie Hum Saath Saath Hai Saif Ali Khan, Tabu, Sonali Bendre and Neelam were also charged for provoking him to hunt. They too made an appearance lately in the court for the same poaching case. The actor is currently busy with his sister’s wedding and the shoot of Bajrangi Bhaijaan. He is also shooting for Bigg Boss weekend episodes.
Incidentally Salman Khan is also facing re trial in the case of Hit and Run case which dates back to the year 2002.
