After the Rajasthan High Court acquitted actor Salman Khan in Chinkara poaching cases, the Rajasthan Government on today said that they will appeal against the order. The actor who had recieved a breather after the High Court judgement is yet again in trouble,it implies.

The state’s law Minister Rajendra Rathore said that the Rajasthan government is studying the merits and demerits of the case. ”The government has decided to appeal against the decision in Supreme Court,” Rathore said.

The State government has also asked the Sultan star to surrender and if he doesn’t, the move to SC will be the next step.

The actor was acquitted on July 25 in the black buck poching case by the Rajasthan High Court. The prime reason was the invalidity of the witness’ statements. The HC had said that since the witness, Salman’s driver had ”disappeared” and the defence could not cross examine him during the trials, it was rejected to be validated.

The driver had alleged that Salman was responsible for shooting the gazelle.

Two separate cases were registered against the actor under section 51 of the Wildlife Protection Act for poaching two chinkara. This happened when the actor was shooting for Sooraj Barjatya’s ‘Hum Saath Saath Hain’ in 1998.

The actor who is busy shooting for Kabir Khan’s Tubelight in Manali right now might have to roam in judicial courtyards again if the Rajasthan government moves to SC as is being said.
