During the shoot of Sooraj Barjatya's 'Hum Saath Saath Hain' in 1998, Salman Khan and seven others close to him were accused of killing a blackbuck and a chinkara in two separate incidents. However Salman Khan kept denying that he was involved in the killing of the endargered species and the case went on for close to two decades.
One of the animals was killed at Bhawad on the outskirts of Jodhpur on September 26, 1998, and the other at Ghoda Farms on September 28, 1998. The issue was a nation wide debate and Salman Khan was slammed for his senseless actions on killing the animals.
Raj Kumar Rinwa, Rajasthan's Forests and Environment Minister was quoted as saying after the acquittal, "We will study the court order today and then the forest department along with the law and home departments will decide on the appeal in this case."
