“Justice has won. Prosecution completely failed to prove charges under sec 3/25, 3/27 of Arms Act,” said Salman Khan’s lawyer HS Saraswat following the court’s verdict.

A Jodhpur court Wednesday acquitted actor Salman Khan and gave him the benefit of doubt in a case in which the actor was charged under the Arms Act. Besides the cases of poaching of endangered antelopes under Wildlife (Protection) Act, a case under sections 3/25 and 3/27 of the Arms Act was filed against Khan for allegedly keeping and using the fire arms with expired licence in the poaching of blackbucks in Kankani near Jodhpur on October 1-2, 1998.

The public prosecutor said they will decide on appealing against the verdict after analysing the judgment. In the 102-page judgment, CJM DS Rajpurohit said the prosecution’s evidence against the actor was not adequate.
