- Salman has faced four cases over alleged deer hunt in 1998
- Testified in Rajasthan court today along with co-stars Saif, Tabu, others
- Salman denies charges, says he has been 'falsely implicated' in case
Salman Khan has faced four cases over the years linked to the killing of two blackbucks and two chinkara in the alleged deer hunt while filming the 1998 movie "Hum Saath Saath Hain".
The other actors are accused of instigating him.
Salman Khan, says the prosecution, drove a Gypsy to the forests near Jodhpur on the night of October 1, 1998, with Saif Ali Khan sitting with him and the others in the back. The prosecution alleges that guided by two locals, the group went deep into the forests, in an area where deer are protected and roam freely, and shot the blackbucks.
Mr Khan has alleged that the witnesses were "concocted" by the forest department for publicity. The Rajasthan High Court had last year acquitted the actor in two cases related to the hunting of chinkara deer.
The other actors have also denied any role in the deer killing. They were asked to appear on Wednesday to record their statement but they asked for more time citing extra security a day ahead of yesterday's Republic Day celebrations.
