Blackbuck Poaching Case: Rajasthan HC to Hear Plea Challenging Acquittal of Saif & Others

The Rajasthan High Court is set to hear a plea moved by the Rajasthan government challenging the acquittal of Saif Ali Khan and four others in the 1998 blackbuck poaching case in which Salman Khan was convicted and later granted bail, reports ANI. Salman was granted bail after being convicted and sentenced to five years of imprisonment on 5 April 2018 for killing two blackbucks in Jodhpur during the shoot of Hum Saath Saath Hain. He spent two nights at the Jodhpur Central jail.

Due to lack of evidence, Salman's co-stars in the movie – Saif Ali Khan, Sonali Bendre, Neelam, Tabu and Dushyant Singh – were acquitted. In May, the Jodhpur bench of Rajasthan High Court had issued fresh notices to the actors following an appeal by the Rajasthan government against their acquittal.
