Salman Khan Guilty of Poaching Protected Animals


Salman Khan has been found guilty of poaching rare antelope back in 1998, an Indian court has ruled.

The Bollywood star killed the two blackbucks, a protected species, in the western state of Rajasthan while shooting a film.

Four other actors who starred with Salman Khan in the movie and were also charged with the offence have been acquitted by the court in Jodhpur.

Salman Khan Cleared in Hit and Run Case

Salman Khan’s Sentence Suspended by Mumbai High Court

Salman Khan could now face between one and six years in jail. He can appeal against the verdict.

This is far from the Bollywood superstar’s first brush with the law. In December 2015, Salman Khan was cleared in a 2002 hit-and-run case in which a homeless man died.

This is the fourth case filed against the actor in connection with poaching animals during the filming of the 1998 movie Hum Saath Saath Hain.

Salman Khan has been acquitted in three of those cases.
