On July 25th, Bollywood superstar Salman Khan was acquitted in the Chinkara case that was being heard in the Jodhpur High Court. The judge cleared him from all the charges and stated that the evidence available against Salman Khan was circumstantial.
After all, key witness went missing, and the pellets recovered from the vehicle used for hunting did not match Salman Khan’s licensed gun. So, the Jodhpur High Court acquitted him by giving him the benefit of doubt.
Salman was accused of hunting two Chinkaras at Bhawad in Mathania near Jodhpur on September 26, 1998 and another Chinkara at Ghoda farms two days later on September 28th, while he was in Jodhpur during the shooting of film Hum Saath Saath Hain. He was sentenced to one-year imprisonment and was slapped a fine of Rs 5,000. In February 2006, Salman Khan was convicted under the Wild Life Act for poaching the Chinkaras. Saif Ali Khan, Tabu, Sonali Bendre and Neelam were also charged with hunting two black bucks at Kankani village in September, 1998.
While, fans of Salman Khan welcomed the decision, others seem to be criticizing it. And much to our surprise people are now questioning if Salman did not kill, who killed the animal?
Interestingly, there is a conspiracy theory that is going round. Shockingly, the theory states that it wasn’t Salman Khan but Saif Ali Khan who had killed the black buck. Yes, you heard that right. According to the report, accepting the crime would have been troublesome to Saif as he belongs to a royal family. If he would have accepted killing the animal, he would have not only lost his title but also his royalties.
Since he is from royal family, the outcome would have been very huge which would have destroyed everything. This scared everybody on the sets of the film. Next, Salman Khan decided to take the blame on his own name to save Saif Ali Khan. Yes, this is what we are getting to hear. Bhai saved Saif Ali Khan by taking the entire blame on himself. Looks like, the theory is a script of a Salman film. After all, Salman in his films can go to any extent to help others.We are sure some Salman Khan fan is behind the theory.
Now isn’t that shocking? Well, since it is just a theory, there are obviously no facts to support it. We wonder what Saif Ali Khan has to say about this. After all, this theory will definitely shock him just like it shocked us. How about you – What do you feel about this latest conspiracy theory?
Meanwhile, while Salman can heave a sigh of relief for now, there are two more cases on him – 1. On the black buck poaching case and, 2. On possessing illegal arms in the trial courts.
