Jodhpur: A Jodhpur court on Monday acquitted actor Salman Khan in a case of submission of a fake affidavit in connection with the 1998 blackbuck poaching case.
His affidavit had claimed that he lost the license documents of his weapons though the license had been sent for renewal.
“Salman Khan’s intention was not to submit a false affidavit or provide frivolous information on his license. Following the hearing, the court dismissed the charges against my client,” the actor’s lawyer Hastimal Saraswat told reporters.
Salman was on April 5, 2018, convicted and sentenced to five years imprisonment after being found guilty of killing two blackbucks in Jodhpur during the shooting of his 1998 movie ‘Hum Saath Saath Hain’.
However, a court later granted bail to the actor after he spent two nights at the Jodhpur Central jail.
