The blackbuck poaching case against Salman Khan is still going on in court and today, when the court asked him to state his religion, Salman Khan says ‘I am an Indian’. Here’s his complete statement-
“I am Hindu-Muslim, I am Bhartiya (Indian).” He had said something quite similar last year during the hearing in Chinkara case too. Salman further claimed that the blackbuck died of natural causes.
His Hum Saath Saath Hain co-stars Saif Ali Khan, Tabu, Sonali Bendre and Neelam Kothari were also present at the Jodhpur court today. They all pleaded not guilty in the poaching case.
The case has been pending since the year 1998. The above-mentioned five actors have been accused of poaching the endangered Blackbucks on October 1,2 in the year 1998. Salman is the key accused while others are co-accused. The case has now been given another date for the hearing- 15 February.
