Salman Khan has arrived for his hearing date in Jodhpur court for a 1997 case of killing two Black Bucks (Chinkaara) on the outskirts of Kankani village. The animals he killed are protected under Wildlife conservation act as they are endangered species. Saif Ali Khan, Sonali Bendre and Tabu were also their with him as they went for a hunt during the shoot of their film Hum Saath Sath Hain in 1997. All the other actors were cleared out from the case and Salman was left hanging the bag all by himself. Last year in September 2 Salman had a hearing of this case where 2 eye witnesses were called upon and they Salman as guilty.
Witnesses by the name of Shera Ram and Mangi Lal recorded their statements as they said that they saw Salman with a gun in his hand as he left in Maruti Gypsy from the death place of Black Buck. In January 2017 Salman pleaded not guilty in the court and also appealed that the original fornsic report that stated natural death as the cause of Black Buck’s death was right. Due to the presence of these eye-witnesses Salman has a steel hanging up his neck in today’s hearing.
Due to the shortage of time hearing of September 2, 2017 was postponed as it is happening now. There is no way Salman is going to plead guilty on the case as he will be looking at real jail time like Sanjay Dutt. Case has been going on for 20 years now and Salman was bailed out only once in this matter in a matter of hours before he even went inside the jail. Salman has under the scrutiny of law for two cases one of which says that he ran over a few people on footpath with his car. He has gotten rid of that case after years of hearings but the Black Buck case does not seem to leave him.
