Bollywood actor Salman Khan on Wednesday was exonerated in Arms Act case by Jodhpur court. The court gave him benefit of doubt. After the court announced its verdict in the case, the actor hugged his sister Alveera who had arrived in the court along with him in morning.
In the 102-page judgment, CJM Dalpat Singh Rajpurohit ruled that the prosecution failed to prove charges framed against the actor under sections 3/25 and 3/27 of the Indian Arms Act.
Hastimal Saraswat, who is Salman’s lawyer welcomed the verdict of the court. “In the 102 page judgment, the court found that the prosecution had completely failed to prove the charges,” he said.
“We have always said that the evidence, documents and the entire case was fabricated to frame Salman. What was (forest officer) Lalit Bora’s interest in this?” Saraswat asked.
Forest department in Jodhpur had filed case against Salman Khan under the Arms Act in October, 1998 for alleged possession and use of arms with expired license during alleged poaching of two black bucks in Kankani village.
