Salman Khan was charged for basically two offences. First, under Section 3/25 and 3/27 for

allegedly keeping and using firearms with an expired license in the alleged poaching of

blackbucks in Kankani near Jodhpur. Second, for hunting endangered antelopes under Section 51

of the Wildlife (Protection) Act. He has been acquitted in the second, i.e Chinkara Poaching case

because of lack of evidence or giving him benefit of doubt. A judgment for the first case under

Arms Act, is yet to be delivered.

The Chinkara Poaching Case judgement, wherein Salman Khan is acquitted is delivered by the

Rajasthan High, reversing the judgment of the Magistrate which convicted him. An appeal

against the judgment of the High Court can definitely be filed in the Supreme Court under

Article 132.
