The High Court had on March 11 issued notices to the five respondents on the states government’s appeal challenging their acquittal for the same. Justice Garg has directed the case to be heard after eight weeks.
Earlier, Salman Khan was convicted under Section 52 of the Wildlife (Protection) Act by the CJM’s court. He was awarded a five-year prison term term and fined Rs 10,000 after being found guilty of killing two blackbucks in Jodhpur during the shooting of cult favourite Hum Saath Saath Hain.
His appeal is still pending before the high court while he is out on bail.
His co-stars were acquitted due to lack of evidence.
