Salman Khan thanks fans for their support after getting relief in Blackbuck case
Salman had earlier apologised before the court for 'mistakenly' submitting a false affidavit in 2003
Salman Khan has thanked his fans for their support after the Jodhpur District and Sessions Court dismissed two pleas against him. The pleas were filed by the Rajasthan government against the actor in a case related to submitting a false affidavit in 2003.
Posting a picture on Instagram, Salman thanked his fans in an accompanying note.
Earlier on Tuesday, Salman had apologised before the court for 'mistakenly' submitting a false affidavit in 2003 during his hearing in the blackbuck poaching case. His lawyer Saraswat told the court that the actor should be forgiven for mistakenly submitting the false affidavit back then.
In 1998, Salman was arrested for hunting two blackbucks in Kankani village near Jodhpur during the shooting of the film Hum Saath Saath Hain. At that time, a case under Arms Act was registered against the actor and the court had asked him to submit his arms licence.
Salman submitted an affidavit in the court in 2003, saying that he had lost the licence. He also lodged an FIR at the Bandra police station in Mumbai in this connection. However, the court later came to know that his Arms licence was not lost, but had been submitted for renewal.
Public prosecutor Bhavani Singh Bhati had then demanded that a case of misleading the court be filed against the actor. However, on Thursday, the Jodhpur District and Sessions Court judge Raghavendra Kachwal dismissed the pleas filed against Salman.
