Jodhpur, Oct 24: Bollywood actor Salman Khan will appear before the principal bench of the Rajasthan High Court here today in connection with the 1998 Chinkara poaching case. Sanjay, who was released on bail on August 31, will today attend the hearing on his review petition. Salman had filed the review petition against the District and Session Court's verdict of August 24 in which the court had rejected his appeal in the Ghoda Farm Chinkara poaching case and upheld five year imprisonment awarded to him by the lower trial court. Salman was convicted on April 10, 2006. The court also imposed a fine of Rs 25,000 on him.
Salman was found guilty of poaching the Chinkara at Ujiyala Bhakhar near Ghoda Farm in 1998 while shooting for the film "Hum Saath Saath Hain". The actor has been charged with poaching two Chinkaras at Ujiyala Bhakhar near Ghoda Farm. Bollywood actors Saif Ali Khan, Satish Shah, Sonali Bendre, Tabu and Neelam Kothari have been acquitted in the case.
Salman has also been sentenced to a year's imprisonment in another poaching case at Bhawad.
