Salman Khan once again seems to be caught in trouble due to the illegal hunting of black deer. The matter is to be heard again today, in which the court can give its verdict.

At the hearing on Tuesday, Salman’s lawyer requested the court to pardon the actor for the mistake in the affidavit dated 8 August 2003.

Salman Khan was arrested in 1998 for hunting two blackbuck in the seams of Kankani village near Jodhpur. At that time, the court asked him to renew his weapons license. In an affidavit, Salman Khan stated that the license had been lost. To confirm this, he also prepared a copy of the FIR lodged at Bandra Police Station in Mumbai. The court later learned that Salman Khan’s license was not lost, but Salman was granted a license to renew. As a result, the court reprimanded Salman.
The government lawyer demanded from the court that a case should be registered against Salman for misleading the court. Salman’s lawyer Hastimal Saraswat argued in the court that Salman was not lying on purpose. Due to the busy schedule, he forgot that his license was not lost.
