"The court of chief judicial magistrate (CJM) asked Salman Khan, Saif Ali Khan, Tabu, Sonali Bendre, Neelam and one other person to be personally present before the court on January 25 for recording of their statements in the blackbuck poaching case," Hastimal Saraswat, Salman Khan's counsel, told.
