Yesterday we had reported that Bollywood star Salman Khan was to appear before the Jodhpur court to for verification of bail bonds submitted by him in a case related to the Arms Act. But according to sources, Salman failed to appear before the court on Thursday. Salman did not make it citing security reasons.
While the actor’s lawyers were present in the court, he was not present.
Salman was acquitted by the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate in January 2017, under the Arms Act case. He had then filed a bail bond in a higher court, the District and Sessions judge.
The state government on March 7 filed an appeal challenging the decision of the Chief Judicial Magistrate. This is pending for adjudication in the District and Sessions court.
The Dabangg star along with Bollywood actors Saif Ali Khan and Tabu were involved in the poaching of blackbucks on the night of October 1, 1998, during the shoot of Hum Saath-Saath Hain.
Salman was expected to be present for the hearing of a case at Kankani village near Jodhpur where the shooting of the film took place.
The case has been postponed now until July 22.
