Blackbuck case: Rajasthan govt to move HC against acquittal of Sonali Bendre, Saif Ali Khan and others

Jaipur, Sep 15: The Rajasthan government on Saturday decided to appeal before the High Court against the acquittal of actors Sonali Bendre, Neelam Kothari and Tabu, Saif Ali Khan and others in Blackbuck poaching case.

The decision comes nearly five months after the four actors were acquitted in the case, while Salman Khan was found guilty and sentenced to five years’ jail term for killing two Blackbucks in Jodhpur during the shooting of his 1998 blockbuster ‘Hum Saath Saath Hain’.

However, the Jodhpur court had acquitted co-accused bollywood actors- Saif, Neelam, Tabu and Sonali, and Jodhpur resident Dushyant Singh due to lack of evidence.

In August, court ordered that Salman Kahan will need to seek its permission whenever he has to travel abroad.

The ruling came in response to a plea filed by the 52-year-old’s counsel, asking for an exemption from seeking permission to travel outside the country.
