Salman Khan thanks fans after acquittal in 18-year-old chinkara poaching cases

New Delhi: Bollywood superstar Salman Khan recently took to Twitter to thank his fans and social media followers after getting acquitted in two cases of chinkara poaching of 1998. The 50-year-old actor was grateful to all his lover for their prayers.

The Rajasthan High Court on Monday acquitted the 'Bhaijaan'of B-Town, disappointing the Bishnoi community and animal rights activists. Salman had appealed before the Jodhpur bench of the high court challenging a lower court verdict of 2006 handing him a one year and a five-year jail term in the two separate incidents of poaching.

Salman and the Rajasthan government had challenged the lower court's verdicts on various grounds.

On Monday, Justice Nirmaljit Kaur, while allowing Salman's appeal, acquitted him of all charges and dismissed the state government appeal for enhancing the sentences.

"He has been acquitted in both the cases by the high court," Salman's counsel Hastimal Saraswat told IANS.

It is the second time Salman has won acquittal in a criminal case.
