Bollywood star Salman Khan has been asked to appear before a local court here on 29th of January regarding the black buck poaching case.
The actor was given an exemption from appearing in the court till now, and has now been asked to summon in front of the court, public prosecutor Upendra Sharma said.
The investigating officer Ashok Patni was the last witness to be examined, Salman’s counsel Hastimal Saraswat said.
The actor was accused for carrying weapons with expired licence during his hunting trip where he killed black bucks at Kankani village near Jodhpur on the night of 1-2 October, 1998.
The trial in the case resumed on May 25 last year after 7 years of suspension following Rajasthan High Court’s rejection of the revision petition, which was filed by the state government in 2006. The court had rejected the petition on May 15, 2013.
Saraswat said there were no evidences of Khan carrying arms with expired license during the alleged poaching of antelopes.
“There are many loose ends in the case. During examination, the officer could not give satisfactory and conclusive replies to some very important questions raised by me,” Saraswat said.
