Salman Khan and Saif Ali Khan summoned by Jodhpur court in Chinkara poaching case

The Court has summoned Salman to appear before it on February 4 next year. Saif Ali Khan, Sonali Bendre and Tabu have also been summoned

Salman Khan, even in his wildest dreams, wouldn’t have thought of the repercussions of hunting the endangered chinkara and black buck deer while shooting for Sooraj Barjatya’s Hum Saath Saath Hain. “The lower court had framed the Dabangg actor under relevant sections of the Wildlife Act, the Arms Act and the IPC, while Saif Ali Khan, Tabu, Sonali Bendre and Neelam were framed under the Wildlife Act and the IPC,” defense counsel Hastimal Saraswat said.

All the accused had then filed a revision petition in the Sessions Court which set Salman free from Section 27 (illegal possession of arms) of the Arms Act and 148 (rioting with deadly weapons) of IPC. His co-stars – Saif, Tabu and Neelam were discharged of Section 51 (causing harm to wildlife) of Wildlife Act and under 147 (punishment for rioting) and 149 (unlawful assembly of persons) of IPC. According to Saraswat, the state government then filed a revision petition in the Rajasthan High Court which upheld the decision of the Sessions Court in Salman’s case, and section 149 of IPC against the others were dropped.

All the accused had last appeared in the lower court on June 19, 2006, but revision petitions first by the defence and then by the state government had held up the trial. The trial will now commence in the lower court with the revised charges for which the court has summoned all the accused on February 4. We hope justice prevails.
