Black buck poaching case: Rajasthan govt to approach SC against Salman Khan's acquittal

Jaipur: The Rajasthan Government will approach Supreme Court against Bollywood Salman Khan`s acquittal in two cases related to chinkara (black buck) poaching case.

Rajasthan High Court on July 25 had acquitted Khan in the poaching case citing lack of evidences to incriminate him.

In 1998, Khan and seven others were accused of hunting and killing chinkara in two separate incidents.

One of the animals was killed at Bhawad on the outskirts of Jodhpur on September 26, 1998, and the other at Ghoda Farms on September 28, 1998.

At that time, they were shooting for the film "Hum Sath Sath Hain".

Chinkara is an endangered animal accorded the highest protection under the Wildlife Protection Act.
