Blackbuck poaching case: Salman Khan convicted, other accused let off

In World

NEW DELHI: A Jodhpur trial court today convicted actor Salman Khan, while acquitting other accused in the 1998 blackbuck poaching case.

Jodhpur District Presiding Officer Devkumar Khatri pronounced the judgment, while holding off on awarding the quantum of punishment for Salman right away. The sentencing, however, is expected to be announced shortly.

Co-accused Saif Ali Khan, Sonali Bendre, Neelam and Tabu were present in court during pronouncement of the verdict. There are two other accused in the case – travel agent Dushyant Singh and Dinesh Gawre, Salman’s assistant at the time. Gawre is still absconding.

“Argument on quantum of punishment is on. Salman Khan’s counsels are praying for probation,” NS Solanki, a co-accused’s lawyer, told ANI.
