Supreme Court Dismisses Rioting Charges Against Salman Khan In Poaching Case

The Supreme Court passed a judgement on Thursday saying that actor Salman Khan, who alongwith other actors was accused of poaching in Rajasthan in October 1998, will not be tried on charges of rioting.


The apex court dismissed the rioting charges against Salman and ruled that the actor be tried only under provisions of the Wildlife Protection Act. The prosecution had earlier approached the Supreme Court challenging the Rajasthan High Court order by which it had authorised a lower court to withdraw charges of rioting against Salman Khan and four others.


A complaint had been filed against Salman Khan, Saif Ali Khan, Neelam, Tabu and Sonali Bendre on charges of being involved in hunting of the protected blackbucks during the shooting of Hum Saath Saath Hain.
