The actual matter with Black Deer Poaching Case
In 1998, Salman Khan reached Jodhpur during the shooting of the film Hum Saath Saath Hai. He was accused of hunting two black deer in the outskirts of Kankani village adjoining the city. He was sentenced to five years after a lengthy trial, while acquitting the others accused Saif Ali Khan, actresses Neelam, Tabu and Sonali Bendre on the benefit of doubt.
After sentencing, Salman was sent to jail. But soon, he came out on bail. Now he has challenged this decision of the trial court. Also in 1998, Salman was also accused of possessing weapons despite the expiry of the license period. Salman was later acquitted in the case but the state government challenged the trial court’s decision.
