On the other hand, some reports even reminisced about the old interview given by Salman Khan way back in 2008. Salman had reportedly given a statement to one of the most respected magazines about a decade ago wherein he confessed that he wasn’t the one who shot the blackbuck. However, the actor maintained staunch silence on the details of the real culprit.
The 1998 blackbuck poaching case that was in process at Jodhpur court ended in a landmark judgement last afternoon. Salman Khan, who was the main accused, was sentenced to five year imprisonment. However, four of his co-stars, who were also said to be his allies in the case, that is, Saif Ali Khan, Sonali Bendre, Neelam Kothari and Tabu have been acquitted from the case.
