On Tuesday, the Rajasthan government filled an appeal before the Jodhpur District and Sessions Court, challenging a lower court’s order acquitting Bollywood superstar Salman Khan in a case under the Arms Act. The court has issued a notice to Salman, lookingout for a reply by April 21.
Disagreeing with the appeal, Public Prosecutor Pokar Ram Bishnoi criticised the order of the Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM) claiming that the trial court ignored many important facts of the case.
The sessions judge, while admitting the appeal, has posted the matter for further hearing on April 21, Bishnoi told IANS.
In January, the CJM’s court had acquitted Salman of the charges of illegal possession and use of arms during alleged poaching of two black bucks in village Kankani near Jodhpur on October 1-2, 1998.
