Salman Khan arms case: It’s D-Day for Salman bhai as today there will be the final hearing of his 1998 arms case in Jodhpur. The Sultan actor, who was acquitted in two poaching cases earlier this year, is set to be tried in a case under the Arms Act. Salman’s sister Alveera has traveled to Jodhpur for the hearing, which is taking place after the re-examination of five of the prosecution witnesses by the Salman’s defense.
According to a PTI report, Khan’s legal counsel HM Saraswat said, “After completion of the final arguments in the case, the court would pronounce its order whether Khan was guilty in this case or not. As the examination of all five prosecution witnesses including the then district magistrate, Rajat Kumar Mishra, who had given permission to prosecute Khan in the case, has been completed, final hearings would begin from Friday (December 9).”
According to a report by India Today, lawyer Mahipal Vishnoi said there was evidence that the weapons used to kill Black Bucks came from the actor’s home. The case was registered in October 1998 against Khan for using fire weapons with an expired license while poaching two Black Bucks in the village of Kankani, Rajasthan.
