A Jodhpur court will pronounce its verdict in the 1998 blackbuck poaching case 20 years since the incident. The prime accused, Salman Khan, arrived in Mumbai from Abu Dhabi today and later boarded a chartered aircraft for Jodhpur, as reported by Press Trust of India. Also present in the court will be the co-accused, actors Tabu, Saif Ali Khan and Sonali Bendre.

The final arguments in the case were completed in the trial court on 28 March. Chief judicial magistrate Dev Kumar Khatri had reserved the judgment then.

In 1998, Salman along with the others actor were shooting for their film Hum Saath-Saath Hain (1999). Salman and his co-actors had visited the nearby forests where Salman allegedly shot two blackbucks. There is a separate case against Salman for allegedly killing a chinkara too.

In January last year, the Jodhpur court had acquitted Salman in the Arms Act case. He had refuted the allegations and instead said in court that the animals had died of natural causes.
