Big relief for Salman as he gets ACQUITTED in the 1998 poaching cases

Here's the latest update from the world of Bollywood. We bet you wouldn't want to miss this. Read on for details... The Rajasthan High Court passed the verdict a short while ago

After a long wait of 18 years, Salman Khan has been acquitted in the Chinkara and Blackbuck poaching cases. The actor and 7 others were accused of killing the animals -- both protected species -- in two separate incidents in September 1998, while shooting for Sooraj Barjatya’s ‘Hum Saath Saath Hain’ in Rajasthan.

The driver of the jeep that was used by Salman and his co-stars for their alleged hunt has been missing, weakening the prosecution's case against the movie star.

However, the state government can still appeal to the Supreme Court to over-rule today's decision. In 2007, Salman had spent a week in jail in Jodhpur before being granted bail.

A third case about Mr Khan's alleged poaching is yet to be decided in Rajasthan. 
The Rajasthan High Court passed the verdict a short while ago.
