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.

Black buck is a protected animal.

On April 23, the Chief Judicial Magistrate had accepted an application moved by Khan’s counsel seeking exemption from his appearance in the court on the ground of ill health, and asked him to appear today to record his statement.
