The Rajasthan government requested the Supreme Court to convene an urgent hearing against actor Salman Khan in the chinkara poaching case, news agency ANI reported.
The state government had asked the top court Wednesday to direct the actor to surrender for killing two chinkaras 18 years ago. The actor was however acquitted by the Rajasthan High Court in July. The government filed a special leave petition against the acquittal of the high court.
The poaching of the two animals reportedly took place on two days, September 26 and September 28, 1998 on the outskirts of Jodhpur. The actor was in Rajasthan at the time for the shooting of his film ‘Hum saath saath hain’.
