Jaipur, January 18: The judgement in an Arms Act case against Bollywood actor Salman Khan is finally announced by a local court in Jodhpur. Finally the actor was acquitted by court in the case. Salman Khan was presented in court today for the verdict. The case was 18 years old.
Salman was accussed of carrying and using illegal arms with an expired license. A case under Arms Act, 1959 was registered against him. The Rajasthan HIgh Court, has acquitted Salman in another case related to chinkara poaching.
Salman had appealed before the Jodhpur bench of the high court challenging a lower court's verdict in 2006 that handed him a one and five-year term in the two separate cases of poaching. However, Salman as well as the state government had appealed before the high court challenging the lower court's verdicts on various grounds.
In July the high court while allowing the appeal of Salman acquitted him of all the charges and also dismissed the appeal filed by the state government for enhancement of sentence.
However, the Rajasthan government in October 2016, filed a special leave petition (SLP) in the Supreme Court against the acquittal by the high court in the chinkara poaching cases.
So finally its time for relief to the 'Bollywood Dabang' after the acquittal by Jodhpur court.
