Facebook post against actor Salman Khan

Salman Khan who was convicted by a Jodhpur court in the 1998 blackbuck poaching case,on April 5, 2018, is scheduled to be present in Jodhpur Court on September 27 (Friday) in connection with the same. The court had mentioned that Salman Khan’s bail will be cancelled if he is not present in the court on that day.

Earlier in January 2018, a gangster named Lawrence Bishnoi of Rajasthan had issued a death threat to Salman Khan, saying the Bollywood actor will be killed in Jodhpur. “what we will do, will do it openly. Will kill film actor Salman Khan in Jodhpur. Then, they will get to know,” Lawrence Bishnoi had said.

The Bishnoi community in Rajasthan which is known to be fiercely protective of their natural heritage worships the blackbuck and had protested against the actor ever since his alleged involvement in the poaching case came to the fore. The blackbuck also known as Indian Antelope is the only existing member of the genus Antelope. In fact, the complaint against the actor was also registered by the Bishnoi community of the local area at that time.

Salman reportedly had shot and killed two blackbucks (chinkaras) in the Bhagoda ki Dhani village and the complaint against him was registered on 2nd October 1998. He was also accused of carrying firearms with expired licences.

The actor along with his co-actors, Saif Ali Khan, Sonali Bendre, Neelam and Tabu, were in the state for the shooting of the movie Hum Sath Sath Hain during that time. According to reports, the actor, along with his companions had allegedly fled leaving the dead animals behind after being chased by the villagers.

Salman was facing charges under section 51 of the Wildlife Protection Act (1972) and other actors were charged under the provisions of law under section 149 (unlawful assembly) of the Indian Penal Code.
