AIR Staff

Bollywood actor Salman Khan was today acquitted of all charges in the Arms Act case against him in the alleged poaching of two black bucks. The film star was present in the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate (Jodhpur district), where the verdict was pronounced.

A case against the film star was registered in October 1998 under the Arms Act for his alleged use and possession of arms with an expired license during the alleged poaching of two black bucks in Kankani village. Twitter’s been buzzing with reactions to the acquittal of Salman Khan by the Jodhpur court.

“Salman Khan (has been) acquitted in the Arms Act case after the prosecution failed to provide conclusive evidence,” the film star’s lawyer said. Salman’s 0.22 rifle and 0.32 revolver had expired licenses and cases were filed under Sections 3/25 and 3/27. The maximum sentence in Section 3/25 is usually three years while Section 3/27 has seven years as the maximum sentence.

Hailing the decision defense counsel H M Saraswat said: “the court admitted our arguments that Khan was framed in this case as he had no concrete evidence against him.”

Take a look at some funny and witty tweets from Twitter.

Of the four cases against him, Khan has already been acquitted in two cases of poaching by the high court while the third case of poaching is in its final stage.
