Salman Khan Blackbuck Poaching Case: Hearing on case deferred to December 18

Hearing on two appeals pertaining to two poaching cases against Bollywood actor Salman Khan, was deferred to December 18 by a session court in Jodhpur on Friday due to the shortage of time. "There are two appeals pending in the sessions court -- one each by the government against the acquittal of Khan in the Arms Act case and one by Khan himself challenging the conviction in a poaching case," said Khan's counsel Mahesh Bora.

Both were deferred due to "unavailability of enough time with the court".

Before this, hearing on the two applications moved by the prosecution against Khan was also deferred till November 29. One of these applications was moved by the prosecution alleging that Khan had misled the court to obtain exemption from appearance in the court on the ground of a physical problem, while the other application had alleged that Khan had given false information about his arms through an affidavit.

Salman Khan was sentenced to 5 years by the trial court, convicting him in a case under Wildlife Protection Act for killing two blackbucks in Kankani of Jodhpur in 1998.  The other accused, Sonali Bendre Behl, Tabu, Saif Ali Khan and Neelam Kothari were acquitted by the Jodhpur Sessions Court.
