The deer poaching case has drawn attention several times over the past two decades. For the uninitiated, Salman Khan is accused of killing two blackbucks at Bhagoda ki Dhani located in Kankani village near Jodhpur during the filming of Hum Saath Saath Hain.
According to reports, Salman was charged under Section 9/51 of the Indian Wildlife (Protection) Act 1972. Not only Salman, but his co-actors at the time Saif Ali Khan, Sonali Bendre, Neelam and Tabu were also charged under Section 51 of the Wildlife (Protection) Act and under Section 149 (Assembly illegal) of the Indian Penal Code.
However, the courts acquitted them all with the benefit of the doubt. Apart from Salman Khan, two people named Dinesh Gawr and Dushyant Singh are also said to be accused of taking part in poaching.
This is a developing story. Stay tuned.
