Blackbuck Poaching Case: Rajasthan HC To Hear Plea Challenging Acquittal Of Saif Ali Khan, Tabu, And Others

The Rajasthan High Court today i.e., September 16, 2019, will hear a petition moved by the Rajasthan government challenging the acquittal of actor Saif Ali Khan and four others in blackbuck poaching case.

In 1998, Salman Khan, Saif Ali Khan, Sonali Bendre, Tabu, Neelam Kothari and a local Dushyant Singh had allegedly killed two blackbucks in Jodhpur during the shooting of his 1998 blockbuster 'Hum Saath Saath Hain'.

In April 2018, a Jodhpur Court convicted actor Salman Khan in the case, while acquitting other actors.

Salman Khan was convicted under Section 51 of the Wildlife (Protection) Act, 1972, and awarded a five-year prison term for killing an endangered animal. Khan was later released on bail.

Earlier in May, Justice Manoj Garg had issued fresh notices to the five accused on a petition moved by the Rajasthan government.
