Appeal to Higher Court
For what offenses was the case filed agaisnt Salman Khan in Jodhpur? After the recent acquittal by the Court can an appeal be filed?
Salman Khan was charged for basically two offences. First, under Section 3/25 and 3/27 for
allegedly keeping and using firearms with an expired license in the alleged poaching of
blackbucks in Kankani near Jodhpur. Second, for hunting endangered antelopes under Section 51
of the Wildlife (Protection) Act. He has been acquitted in the second, i.e Chinkara Poaching case
because of lack of evidence or giving him benefit of doubt. A judgment for the first case under
Arms Act, is yet to be delivered.
The Chinkara Poaching Case judgement, wherein Salman Khan is acquitted is delivered by the
Rajasthan High, reversing the judgment of the Magistrate which convicted him. An appeal
against the judgment of the High Court can definitely be filed in the Supreme Court under
