Bollywood star Salman Khan is likely to appear before the district and sessions court at Jodhpur on Friday in connection with an Arms Act case.

Although the chief judicial magistrate’s court had cited insufficient evidence to acquit the actor on January 18, the prosecution appealed against the decision. The appeal is likely to be heard on Friday.

In October 1998, Khan was charged with possessing an unlicensed .22 rifle and a .32 revolver and using them to poach two black bucks at Jodhpur’s Kankani village. The 51-year-old actor was required to present himself before the district and session judge to present a bail bond of Rs 20,000 as per an April 21 order, defence counsel Hastimal Saraswat said.

The Rajasthan high court had acquitted Khan last year in a case pertaining to the poaching of two chinkaras. The black buck trial is now nearing completion.
