Law is same for everybody: Rajasthan Law Minister on filing SLP in Salman poaching case

ANI  |  Jaipur (Rajasthan) [India] 

Minister Rathore on Wednesday said the state government has filed a Special Leave Petition (SLP) in the Supreme against the decision of the High that acquitted actor in the 1998 alleged chinkara poaching cases.

The High on July 25 had acquitted Salman in the poaching case for the want of evidences. The Minister had said the government was studying the merits and demerits of the case, and has now decided to appeal against the decision in the Supreme Court.

"is same for everybody, even if a person is a celebrity, and that is why the state government has decided to file an SLP," he told ANI.

"In the SLP, we have urged the apex to quash the decision of the high and Harish Dulani, a key witness, whose statements are not recorded, should be record now and the apex should also take his statement into consideration," he added.

Salman was convicted by a lower in 2006 in the two chinkara cases, but this was overturned by the High in its judgment Monday.

One of the animals was killed at Bhawad on the outskirts of Jodhpur on September 26, 1998, and the other at Ghoda Farms on September 28, 1998.

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

Chinkara is an endangered animal accorded the highest protection under the Wildlife Protection Act.
