In a fresh development in the 18-year old cases of deer poaching against Bollywood actor Salman Khan, the Rajasthan government has today moved to the Supreme Court, appealing for an urgent hearing in the poaching case. The Supreme Court will decide on the government’s plea at 2 pm.

The government’s move came following the Rajasthan High Court’s decision, earlier, to acquit the Bollywood actor, citing the prosecution’s failure in proving charges and lack of enough evidence for convicting the accused for killing Chinkaras or Indian gazelles. The High Court’s decision was countering two trial court’s verdict convicting Salman Khan and handing the actor one and five years of imprisonment, following which the superstar had to spend 13 days in jail.

Accusations on Salman Khan were for hunting two chinkaras, a protected wildlife species, in Bhawad village area in Jodhpur and another one at Ghora farm.

Almost a year back, Salman Khan was controversially cleared of all charges in the 2002 hit and run case by the Bombay High Court, raising questions on whether the actor had used his power to influence the court decision.
