Earlier, on January 29, the court had recorded Salman’s statement in which he had "denied all the allegations and said he neither was carrying illegal arms nor did he poach blackbucks," the actor’s counsel Hastimal Saraswat told a news agency.

In October, 1998, during the shooting of ‘Hum Saath Saath Hain’, two blackbucks, a protected animal under the Wildlife Protection Act, were allegedly killed on the outskirts of Kankani village near Jodhpur.

A complaint was filed against Salman Khan, Saif Ali Khan, Neelam, Tabu and Sonali Bendre on charges of being involved in hunting of protected blackbucks.

During this time the Bollywood star was also accused of carrying illegal arms. He is alleged to have been carrying arms with expired license.
