    After Sanjay Dutt, it's now Salman Khan's turn to face the music

    Bollywood actor Salman Khan, who is facing fresh charges in the blackbuck poaching case, is all set to appear in person before a Sessions Court here in the 2002 hit-and-run case on March 25.

    He would return from the USA tonight and appear before the Court on Monday, sources close to the superstar said.

    The case would come up for the first time before the Sessions Court after a Magistrate transferred the matter to that court by charging the actor with a more serious charge of 'culpable homicide not amounting to murder'.

    Along with the prosecution's case against Salman, the court would also hear his appeal against the Magistrate's order, invoking the charge of 'culpable homicide not amounting to murder' against him which attracts a punishment up to ten years in prison.

    Sessions Judge U B Hejib has scheduled the hearing for March 25, and the 47-year-old had been asked to be present on that day, the sources said.

    It would be Salman's first appearance before the Sessions court after Bandra Magistrate's court referred the case to the Sessions Court (because the offence he is now charged with is serious).

    Earlier, the Magistrate had asked Salman to appear before the Sessions court on March 11, but he did not go to the court that day as the case was yet to be assigned to any judge.

    Sources said as there would be a fresh trial, evidence produced before the Magistrate's court would not be considered and prosecution may have to adduce evidence afresh.

    One person was killed and four injured when a Land Cruiser, allegedly driven by Salman, ran over people sleeping on pavement outside a bakery in suburban Bandra in the wee hours of September 28, 2002.

    On March 8, advocate Ashok Mundargi, Salman's lawyer, had urged the Sessions court to hear the main case against the actor and his appeal against Magistrate's order invoking the charge of `culpable homicide not amounting to murder' (section 304 part II of IPC) simultaneously.

    The trial before the Magistrate was proceeding on the lesser charge of 'causing death by negligence' (section 304 A of Indian Penal Code), which attracts maximum punishment of two years in jail.

    After examining 17 witnesses, the Magistrate concluded that the charge of 'culpable homicide not amounting to murder' was prima facie made out against the actor.

    Salman Khan in blackbuck poaching case

    Salman Khan is also fresh facing charges, along with four other actors, in a 14-year-old case of blackbuck poaching during a film shooting in Rajasthan.

    The court of chief judicial magistrate will read out the fresh charges on Saturday to Khan and co-accused Saif Ali Khan, Tabbu, Sonali Bendre, Neelam in connection with the hunting of protected blackbuck at Kankani village in Jodhpur during shooting of film 'Hum Saath Saath Hain'.

    The Rajasthan High Court had revised the charges against these stars in December 2012, charging Khan with section 51 of Wildlife Protection Act and others including a local accused Dushyant Singh with section 51/52 of Wildlife Protection Act and section 149 of IPC.

    Salman has done a whole lot of social service.

    Saif Ali must have done it too!

    Salman should serve some jail term at least for the hit and run case.

    Not at all. They are sure they would be acquitted. Anyway, a few months penalty can be waived off by the guv.

    Hit and run case is water right I think. Salman will surely go to jail for that. He should be thankful that the justice system is so slow in India that he has been able to live freely since the incident and raked in crores of rupees fr his films in the meanwhile.

    Social service cannot be an excuse to not pay for the crimes you commit.

    Datt's case too is water tight. And his crime is much more serious. Comparatively, Salman's case is overspeeding. And Saif? Nothing. Cases are water tight, no doubt. But so what? Both have done charity [claimed], both are great stars. Both have famous parents. Crores ride on both. Both have repeated the offences. Exactly as is being claimed in case of Datt. If they are not pardoned but Datt is, then it would be discrimination.

    i remember it was the time when we first time came to know that along with Lions/Tigers, there are many other animals like Blackbuck, you can't just go for hunting. otherwise we were habituated to hear stories of Foolan Devi, Malkhan Singh type dacaoits only till then.... how killing animals was a question till 80s??? :rofl:

    In India we first need to give full information to the common people, who usually go to farm house and get chickens/goats etc being cut/murdered in front of them, which is not allowed in Australia type country. similarly I think these five people might have thought for a good celebrating party on night and got caught, obviously as all of these 5 are maintaining good reputation in society so they won't do something which may down their reputation.....

    I was discussing that since I came to India, i couldn't drive yet as i now have habit to drive in lights, with help of 2 mirrors only while in India anyone may come from any side, as I still can't see lights in Lucknow so its really hard to start driving here again...... until proper information is provided to common people about even animal rights, and if something happens in these circumstance like this Blackbuck poaching, then government itself in the position to defend itself on this issue. as its obvious that these 5 might not be aware that Blackbuck poaching is a crime and how they will face this type of problem????? this type of cases first make us in the position to ask, whether these 5 where aware that Blackbuck poaching is a crime, or, they simply visited a chicken/goat shop type jungle, similar to how we also used to go for bird hunting during schooling..... :thumb:

    Salmaan is definitely going to jail for the hit and run case. That is reason why he is not getting married. It will be a good lesson for all the other stars who think they can get away with anything.
