Salman Khan's counsel on Monday said there were no direct evidences against the actor that he carried arms with expired licence during the alleged Blackbuck poaching at the nearby Kankani village in 1998.
Salman's counsel Hastimal Saraswat on Monday claimed at the ACJM (Jodhpur District) court that the case against the actor is nothing but a sheaf of untruth, which has miserably failed to count some very important facts.
"During the arguments, the officer could not give any satisfactory and conclusive replies to some very important questions I had raised," Saraswat said.
It may be recalled that a separate case had been registered against Salman by the forest department on October 15, 1998 under the Arms Act mentioning that the licences of the arms in the actor's possession during the alleged blackbuck poaching had expired and hence he had been using them illegally.
"Upon this complaint, the Luni police had registered a case against the actor under sections 3/25 and 27 of Arms Act," Saraswat said.
Meanwhile, magistrate Chandra Kala Jain deferred the trial of the final witness of prosecution in the Arms Act against Salman in the case till January 15.
The then Additional SP and Investigating Officer Ashok Patni, who is the final witness among 16 others, appeared at the trial began on Monday at the ACJM (Jodhpur District) court.
The trial resumed in the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate (Jodhpur District) on May 25 this year, seven years after the Rajasthan High Court rejected the revision petition, filed by the state government in 2006. More....
