The actor was summoned to the Jodhpur court on January 18, for the verdict on the Arms Act case that was filed against him 18 years ago. Well, in 1998 the actor was charged with three cases i.e. of illegal poaching of chinkara, alleged killing of two black bucks (endangered species) and Arms Act case for using illegal weapon to conduct the activity. The actor has received acquittal from all the three cases, with the Arms Case being the recent one.
The actor was accused of carrying and using illegal arms with an expired license. Due to this, a case under the Arms act was registered against him. Apparently Khan had used a US-made revolver and a 22-bore rifle with him on the day of the incident. The prosecution claimed that the license of both the firearms had expired on September 22, 1998. However, the 51 year old had used the arms to hunt two black bucks on October, 1 and 2, in 1998. Khan was booked for allegedly killing the endangered species under the Wildlife Protection Act and the Arms Act – sections 3/25 and 3/27 – for keeping and using fire arms with expired license. However, he’s a free man now.
While many are rejoicing the judgement given by the Jodhpur court, quite a few are trolling the actor and of course, questioning the law.
