Salman gets relief in poaching case

Jaipur, Feb 21 (IANS) Bollywood star Salman Khan Monday got a relief in the 1998 chinkara poaching case as the Jodhpur bench of the Rajasthan High Court allowed him to leave the country without informing it in advance.

The court had imposed the restriction on him before granting bail in the case in 2007. Following that, the actor had to inform the court before leaving the country in connection with movie shootings abroad.

'The court while hearing our application has exempted Salman from the necessity of giving information prior to leaving the country,' said Hastimal Saraswat, advocate for Salman.

Salman and seven others were accused of killing a blackbuck and chinkara in two separate incidents. One of the animals was killed at Bhawad on the outskirts of Jodhpur Sep 26, 1998, and the other at Ghoda Farms Sep 28, 1998.

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

Salman moved the high court in August 2007 appealing against a chief judicial magistrate's order in April 2006 that sentenced him to five years' rigorous imprisonment in connection with the poaching case.

The actor had to spend a week behind bars after he was granted bail by the high court. Before the court released him on bail, it had asked the actor to give it prior information before leaving the country.
