It seems that there is no relief for the Sultan of Bollywood as there is no way for him to get out of the legal issues. Where there are lines of accusation against him, the 1998 arms act verdict is about to release. The Blackbuck killing case. Now he is going through another legal case. A case against Khan had been registered under the Arms Act by police in October 1998 for alleged use and possession of arms with expired license during alleged poaching of two blackbucks in Kankani village.
A court fixed the date of January 18 for pronouncing the verdict in the Arms Act case against Salman Khan and asked the actor to be present on that date. The court of chief judicial magistrate fixed the date after the final arguments from both the sides completed today. Magistrate Dalpat Singh Rajpurohit directed Khan to be present in the court during pronouncement of the order. The final arguments of the case had started on December 9 last year.
The whole issue started when Salman and his friends and colleagues from the movie ‘Hum Saath Saath Hai’ in 19198 and went for hunting in the protected forest Bhawad in Mathania near Jodhpur. In February 2006, Salman Khan was convicted under the Wild Life Act for poaching a Chinkara and sentenced to one-year imprisonment and was slapped a fine of Rs 5,000. Salman Khan, Saif Ali Khan, Tabu, Sonali Bendre and Neelam were too accused at the same time. The case has taken very possible turn and twist, and thus now the verdict seems to be more interesting.
The case was filed by the forest department, and if convicted, Khan could face imprisonment for seven years.
