Salman Khan, one of India’s biggest Bollywood stars, has been found guilty of killing of two blackbuck in Jodhpur in Rajasthan about 20 years back. The 52-year-old actor was found guilty of hunting blackbuck while working in the film “Hum Saath Saath Hain” in 1998. He was present in the Jodhpur court today alongside his co-stars Saif Ali Khan, Tabu, Sonali Bendre and Neelam. Salman Khan and other actors were confronting charges under the Wildlife (Protection) Act.

The blackbuck is an endangered species and is secured under the Indian Wildlife Act. The poaching had occurred near to a town of Bishnois, a community that revers blackbuck and is dedicated about securing these animals.

The night of October 1, 1998, the Bishnoi villagers, on hearing shots, came out running from their houses. They alleged that they chased the Gypsy that Salman Khan was driving, and that the actor fled. Deer carcass was found at the spot from where the actors headed out. The Bishnois were key witnesses in the case against Salman Khan.
