- Salman is accused of illegally hunting endangered blackbuck and chinkara
- He has faced four separate cases in connection to this
- Twitter thinks it's beyond ironical that Salman was at the event
Salman Khan was at the book launch at the behest of Bina Kak, a friend of the family and former minister of tourism and environment in the Rajasthan cabinet. Salman's Tiger Zinda Hai co-star Katrina Kaif was also at the book launch as were his father Salim Khan and stepmother Helen.
The Rajasthan High Court acquitted Salman Khan in two cases of poaching last year. Early this year, he was also let off in an Arms Act case connected to poaching. In January, he told a Jodhpur court that he was innocent in the fourth poaching - his Hum Saath Saath Hain co-stars Saif Ali Khan, Tabu, Neelam and Sonali Bendre are accused of instigating him in the alleged illegal deer hunt.
Twitter also thinks it beyond ironical that Salman would be asked to do the honours at an event celebrating wildlife:
