Salman's petition hearing on April 5
Jodhpur, Apr 4 (UNI) A local court has fixed April 5 for hearing a petition filed by actor Salman Khan against the charges framed by the judicial magistrate court on Feb 27, 2006 in the infamous black buck poaching case.
Jodhpur district and Sessions court magistrate Gordhansingh Surana yesterday transferred the petitions of Salman Khan and actresses Tabu and Sonali Bendre to Upper District and Session court (No.3) as its magistrate Pankaj Bhandari had already admitted petitions filed by actor Saif Ali Khan and Neelam on April 1.
The court had fixed April 3 for hearing the petitions filed by defence council Hastimal Sarawat but as the case records are maintained at the Upper District and Sessions Court, it decided that the hearing of all petitions should be held there.
The actors have been accused of killing two black bucks in Kankani village in Luni district in October 1998. When they were shooting for the film 'Hum Saath Saath Hain'.
Actresses Tabu, Sonali and Neelam were said to be present during the hunting expedition. The case will come up for hearing on April 5 and 7 at the court of judicial magistrate Dalpat Singh Rajpurohit.
But since the case records are maintained at the Upper District Court, there is a liklihood of new dates being announced.
