Salman Khan acquitted in 18-year-old Arms Act case

A Jodhpur court on Wednesday acquitted Bollywood star Salman Khan in the Arms Act case. His sister Alvira Khan was also present in CJM court during the verdict. The court said that the actor was acquitted in the Arms Act case after the prosecution failed to provide conclusive evidence. While, the prosecution lawyer Bhawani Singh told reporters,”We have not been supplied the copy of judgement. Court gave benefit of doubt to accused.”

Two blackbucks, a protected animal under the Wildlife Protection Act, were killed on the outskirts of Kankani village near Jodhpur. Khan is accused of carrying and using illegal arms and also alleged to have been carrying arms with expired licence. A police complaint was filed against him on charges of being involved in hunting the protected blackbucks.(ONE INDIA,2017)
