The actor stunned everyone gathered inside the court room...
Salman Khan appeared in the Jodhpur court yesterday for a hearing in the Arms Act case in connection with the poaching of the protected black bucks in October 1998. We had revealed to you yesterday that he had stated that he was framed in the case by forest officials. However, Salman made one politically correct statement which will make you proud.
In the introductory formalities in the court of CJM Dalpat Singh Rajpurohit, the actor mentioned, "I am Salman Khan and I am an Indian, that is what I mention in my caste column."
If you remember, during an earlier hearing too Salman had mentioned himself as an Indian, but as Indian can't be a caste, he had mentioned I am a Hindu-Muslim.
Key witness Uday Raghvan had stated earlier that he brought the arms from Mumbai following Khan's directions. to this, the actor stated that he had signed the last statement under pressure from forest officials. Salman pleaded not guilty, after which, the court asked him to produce evidence in support of his innocence and deferred the matter till April 4. Additional public prosecutor Dinesh Tiwari said that this was the last chance for the actor to produce witnesses and evidences in support of his defence.
A few months back, Salman Khan was given a clean chit in the 2002 hit-and-run case by the Bombay High court. Also check out footage of Salman Khan after he returned from Jodhpur in the video below:
