A Brief History Of The Blackbuck Poaching Case, For Which Salman Khan Is In Jail

Two blackbucks were shot dead near a village of the Bishnoi community in October 1998, when Salman Khan and other actors - Saif Ali Khan, Sonali Bendre, Tabu and Neelam Kothari - allegedly went on a hunt after spending the day shooting for their film, "Hum Saath Saath Hain". While Salman Khan has been found guilty in the case and sentenced to five years in prison, the other actors, who accompanied him in the car, have been acquitted for lack of evidence.

Salman Khan had spotted a herd of blackbucks and shot dead two of them, the court was told. The Bishnois alleged that they heard gunshots and came running out of their homes. They claimed that they took a bike and chased the Gypsy that Salman Khan was driving. They later found blackbuck carcasses at the site.

After the verdict sentencing Salman Khan was announced yesterday afternoon, the villagers of the Bishnoi community, who filed the case against the actors and pursued the poaching case for almost two decades, celebrated "justice". The Bishnoi community consider blackbucks sacred, and worship them.
