The Rajasthan high court in Jodhpur is expected to pronounce its verdict on Monday in two cases of chinkara poaching related to actor Salman Khan

Khan has challenged a lower court’s verdict that handed him one and five years’ imprisonment in the two cases.

The high court completed the hearing in the last week of May, reserving the decision.

If it upholds the lower court’s verdict, the actor, whose latest film Sultan is running successfully across the country, will go to the Jodhpur central jail, where he spent five days in 2006 after being found guilty.

One of the animals was killed on the outskirts of Jodhpur on September 26, 1998, and two others at Ghoda Farms two days later. The actor was at that time shooting for the film Hum Saath Saath Hain.
