New Delhi, Aug 4, 2017: Bollywood superstar Salman Khan appeared before the district sessions court at Jodhpur today in connection with an Arms Act case and signed a bail bond of Rs 20,000.
The next date of hearing in the case has been fixed for October 5.
Earlier, Salman was acquitted in the 18-year-old Arms Act case by the Chief Judicial Magistrate by giving him the benefit of doubt.
The charges leveled against Salman were that he had illegally used weapons to kill two black buck deer in Jodhpur while shooting for Hum Saath Saath Hai in 1998. But there wasn’t enough evidence to prove that the actor had indeed used his weapons to hunt.
The Rajasthan government appealed against the court’s acquittal, the hearing for which will begin today at the sessions court.
