The actor has four cases against him, and this is the one of the four. Salman Khan will be appearing in the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate.

According to Bhawani Singh Bhati, the prosecution counsel said the arguments of the case were already done on January 9 in the trial court, and the magistrate Dalpat Singh Rajpurohit ordered to announce the results on 18 January. When the arguments were going on the defense said there was proof against Salman Khan. He said Khan was framed by the forest department, the prosecution argued and said there were enough proofs against Salman Khan as he used expired fire arms. Before this, last year on 10th March Salman appeared in the court to record his statements.
Salman’s counsel H M Saraswat said, “We had argued in the court that there was no evidence that Khan was carrying fire arms either during his stay here or during alleged poaching. What he was found in possession with, were actually the air guns.”
