The District and Session Court gave this order after rejecting an application of the defence seeking recalling of a prosecution witness for his examination.
"The court has rejected the application of the defence seeking recalling of a prosecution witness, the then District Magistrate Rajat Kuamr Mishra, and ordered the defence to ensure the presence of Khan in the court on March 10 for the recording of the accused's statements", said Additional Public Prosecutor Dinesh Tiwari.
The case under Arms Act against Salman Khan was registered after the weapons, allegedly used by him in a poaching case at Kankani village where he had allegedly hunted down 2 black bucks on 1-2 October, 1998, had their licences expired.
The judgment in the case under Arms Act was to be delivered on February 25 last year but emergence of a prosecution application had held up the judgment.
After a decision on that application, the defence moved an application seeking re-examination of 5 prosecution witnesses, which were completed yesterday.
