Salman Khan, who was acquitted in a criminal case accusing him of possessing and using weapons with an expired licence while hunting for endangered chinkaras and blackbucks at Kankani village and elsewhere near Jodhpur, on January 18, pleaded “not guilty”.
And the reason Bhai gave definitely needs an Oscar!!
As per Salman the deer died due to natural cause and he is been falsely accused in the case!! Well..Uhmm Uhmm!!
After hearing this award-winning reason, twitter exploded with Bhai Jokes!!
He claimed that only a forensic report saying that the endangered animal died of “natural cause” was true.
“The rest of the evidence [against me] is false,” Mr. Khan said in the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate in Jodhpur while recording his statement in the 18-year-old case accusing him of hunting the endangered species.
His ‘Hum Saath Saath Hain’ co-stars – Saif Ali Khan, Neelam, Tabbu and Sonali Bendre also appeared in the court along with Mr. Khan. Salman was asked 65 questions by CJM Dalpat Singh Rajpurohit about the circumstances of the incident and his involvement in the alleged offence.
He was questioned on statements from 28 witnesses. Among the witnesses are members of the Bishnoi tribe who hold deer sacred and live near the place where the blackbucks were shot.
Salman claimed that he was innocent and the Forest Department made up the whole story “for publicity”.
The next hearing in the case was fixed on February 15.
