Salman Khan has been acquitted by the Jodhpur Court in the Arms Act case of 1998. The actor surely must have breathed a heavy sigh of relief as the saga that has continued to haunt him for almost two decades has finally come to an end. Salman’s sister Alvira had also arrived at Jodhpur to support her brother through the hearing. Salman’s legal representative in the case Mahipal Vishnoi revealed that the actor had been charged under sections 3/25 and 3/27 of the Arms Act.

Salman was shooting for the film Hum Saath-Saath Hain when he allegedly shot two black bucks with illegal guns. Moreover, his license for the guns had expired in September that year – a month before Salman’s fateful hunt in October, according to a report in Hindustan Times. At the time, Bhai had said that the illegal weapons had been stolen from him, however, after a police search, the revolver was recovered in his hotel room.

Of course, now Bhai’s legion of fans can rejoice as the actor is a free man. In fact, many of the Ek Tha Tiger actor’s fans had assembled outside the court in an act of support for Salman. In fact, when he was walked out of the court, fans began to cheer for the actor. Twitter too has gone wild with celebration. Check out some of the reactions below:

Had the court’s verdict gone against Salman, the actor would have had to serve a seven-year jail term. Last year, the star was acquitted in the 2002 hit and run case, which had resulted in the death of one man and the injury of four others. This is the third case that the actor has been acquitted in.
