Blackbuck poaching case: Salman Khan can't travel abroad without permission
Jodhpur, Aug 4: The Jodhpur court hearing the blackbuck poaching case against Bollywood Superstar Salman Khan ruled that the actor would need to seek its permission every time he travels abroad.
Salman Khan's lawyers moved an application in the court of District and Sessions Judge Chandra Kumar Songara today, seeking an exemption from this requirement.
The court was hearing Salman Khan's plea against his conviction by a trial court, which had handed him a five-year jail sentence for killing two blackbucks 20 years ago in Kankani village near Jodhpur. Public prosecutor PR Bishnoi opposed the application for exemption from travel permission, arguing that the trial will be over soon.
Salman Khan's counsel Mahesh Bora argued that the actor could not be convicted in the Kankani case as similar evidence had been rejected by the high court in two other poaching cases against him.
