Rajasthan moves SC against Salman in chinkara poaching cases

IANS  |  Jaipur 

The government has filed a special leave petition in the Supreme against the acquittal of actor by the High in two 18-year-old chinkara poaching cases, a senior officer said on Tuesday.

"Hearing on our SLP is expected to come up some time after Diwali vacations," Shiv Mangal Sharma, Additional Advocate General of the government in Supreme Court, told IANS.

The High in Jodhpur on July 25 acquitted Salman, who was accused of killing two chinkaras in separate incidents.

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

Shooting for the film 'Hum Saath Sath Hain' was taking place at the time in the desert state.

Salman moved the Jodhpur bench of the High to challenge his conviction by a lower and award of one and five-year terms in the two poaching cases.

The state government too appealed against the lower court's verdict on different grounds.

On July 25, Justice Nirmaljit Kaur, while allowing Salman's appeal, acquitted him of all charges and also dismissed the state government appeal for enhancing the sentence.

In August, Rajasthan's Additional Advocate General K.L. Thakur recommended to the state government to appeal in the Supreme against Salman's acquittal by the High Court.
