Bollywood actor Salman Khan was ordered to appear before a Jodhpur court on March 10 in connection with a 17 year old trial in Arms Act case against him.

The chief judicial magistrate court would record statements of the accused, Salman Khan, on March 10 following which final argument would be taken up. His statements as accused had been recorded in the chief judicial magistrate court (rural) previously.

Stating that he was innocent in the matter, Salman had sought permission to resummon five witnesses in the case. The five witnesses were argued again. Now, the court has again ordered Salman Khan to appear before the court next Thursday for his statement in connection with the Arms Act case against him.

Salman Khan and his co-stars have been accused of hunting three chinkaras and a blackbuck while shooting for the film “Hum Saath Saath Hain” near Kankani on the night of October 1-2, 1998. The forest department had also filed a separate case under the Arms Act, accusing Khan of not renewing the licences of a revolver and a rifle he possessed.
