An application has been moved in Jodhpur court against Salman Khan accusing him of misleading the court by seeking exemption from appearance on health grounds in an Arms Act case related to the black buck shooting though he was reportedly working in a film during the period.

Chief Judicial Magistrate Anupama Bijlani has admitted the application moved by Lalit Boda, the then forest officer who had registered the case against Salman Khan for alleged poaching of black bucks in 1998.

The matter has been listed for hearing on April 29.

However, Khan’s counsel H M Saraswat said they had mentioned in the exemption application that Salman Khan had a problem in his ear and has been recommended not to travel by air.

“This application is not maintainable as we had never said that he could not go for shooting. We only said that on account of some ear problem, he has been advised not to go for air travel,” said Saraswat

Boda in his application cited a news report showing Salman Khan shooting for his upcoming film, ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’, in Jammu and Kashmir.

He alleged that by seeking exemption on health grounds, Salman Khan has given wrong facts and has misled the court. Boda sought stringent action against Khan for misleading the court.

A case had been registered against Khan by the forest department under the Arms Act mentioning that licence of the arms used by Khan during alleged poaching of black bucks at village Kankani near Jodhpur on the intervening night of 1-2 October, 1998, had expired and hence the actor had been using the arms illegally.
