After being freed from the 2002 hit and run case, Salman Khan has now been declared innocent in the 1998 Black buck poaching case and Chinkara case. Yes! The Rajasthan High Court just pronounced its verdict. Although the actor wasn’t present at this hearing but the court has acquitted Salman in both the cases. According to Times Now, there were two possibilities before the verdict was announced; either Salman Khan could have walked free and the sentence could have been lowered from 5 years or if Salman was convicted, a warrant would have been issued and he could have been jailed. However, now with this acquittal, the actor can finally breathe a sigh of relief.

Not to forget, Salman had filed an appeal before the High Court challenging the lower court’s verdict that had handed him one and five years’ imprisonment, respectively, in the two separate cases of poaching. For all the ignorant, Salman and seven others were accused of killing a blackbuck and a chinkara in two separate incidents. One of the animals was killed at Bhawad on the outskirts of Jodhpur on September 26, 1998, and the other at Ghoda Farms on September 28, 1998. This happened during the shoot of Sooraj Barjatya’s ‘Hum Saath Saath Hain’.
