On July 25, the Rajasthani High Court presented a verdict of not guilty in the poaching cases against Salman Khan. Basically, he has been acquitted, and will walk scot-free, absolved of all his crimes.
Salman Khan faced jail time if he had been found guilty in the “blackbuck” case against him.
Khan was one of seven accused of killing a blackbuck and a chinkara in two separate incidents. One of the animals was killed at Bhawad near Jodhpur on September 26, 1998, and the other at Ghoda Farms on September 28, 1998.
Twitter, of course, has immediately started commenting about the entire fiasco.

Salman Khan acquitted in poaching case after 18 years.
Probably because all the victim's friends and relatives have already died of old age.

Last year, Khan was acquitted in the 2002 hit-and-run case by the Bombay High Court.
