While opening the hearing, Khan's counsel Mahesh Bora questioned the two inspections of the gypsy, allegedly used by Khan for poaching.

The lawyer questioned the 'difference' in the reports of both of these inspections carried out at a gap of five days. The first inspection was done by the forest officer and the second by the police, a day after filing of the FIR.

He also raised question about the theory of the use of arms by Khan in the poaching and claimed that the arms in question were not with the actor. The actor's lawyer alleged that the arms were later brought from Mumbai.

"When no weapon was used in the alleged poaching, how could they be connected with the poaching," Bora questioned.

The hearing will continue tomorrow. The actor was booked for poaching of two chinkaras in Bhawad area of Jodhpur on September 26-27, 1998 during the shooting of his movie 'Hum Saath Saath Hain'.

There were eight accused in this case. Leaving Khan and Satish Shah rest were locals.

The court of Chief Judicial Magistrate had sentenced Khan for one year on February 17, 2006. All the remaining accused were acquitted.
