The much talked about Black Buck case that has been going on for nearly 20 years, finally arrived at its judgment today at Jodhpur Court, where the main accused, Salman Khan has been convicted. The prosecution says they want the maximum punishment for Salman, however, the quantum of punishment is yet to be announced for the actor.
It all started back in September 1998, where Salman Khan was accused of killing two Chinkaras at Bhavad Village, near Jodhpur. He was further accused of killing a Chinkara at the Rajasthan’s Ghoda farms in October 1998 and two blackbucks near Kankani village in the same month. All this happened during the shoot of Hum Saath Saath Hain, where Salman Khan was shooting with Tabu, Saif Ali Khan, Sonali Bendre and Neelam Kothari.
All the actors were under the scrutiny of the law for the last two decades and this was a judgment long pending. The Dabangg star is currently the most wanted star in the industry today, with crores of rupees riding on him, and producers may be in for a massive loss if the actor goes behind the bars. Having said that, one should also accept, even his biggest fans, that justice has been served. What will happen next in this high-profile case? What will be the quantum of punishment? Time to wait and watch.
