Bollywood Actor Salman Khan was convicted in a 19-year-old blackbuck poaching case by a court in Jodhpur on 5th Apr’18.
Chief Judicial Magistrate Dev Kumar Khatri sentenced him behind bars for five years and also slapped a fine of Rs 10,000 on him for poaching an endangered species of animal after convicting him for offence under section 51 of the Wildlife (Protection) Act for killing two blackbucks in Bhagoda ki Dhani in Kankani village near Jodhpur on the intervening night of October 1-2, 1998 while there for shooting of film ‘Hum Saath Saath Hain”. Khan was taken to the Central Jail in Jodhpur from the court.
The co-accused, actors Saif Ali Khan, Tabu, Sonali Bendre and Neelam, and Jodhpur resident Dushyant Singh have been given the benefit of doubt and acquitted as the evidence against them was not strong enough.
