A local court could not complete the statements of the witnesses in the Chinkara killing case involving Bollywood actor Salman Khan.

The court of Magistrate Dalpat Singh Rajpurohit could only complete the recording of the statement of the then Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Vijaynarayan Pandit of Mumbai in the case where Salman has been booked for keeping illegal arms under the Arms Act of India.

When the court began hearing the statements of the last two witnesses including Jodhpur's Upper Police Superintendent Ashok Patni, the prosecutor asked for some time from the court to present important documents.

The court admitted his petition and fixed the next hearing for June 19. Salman's two arms were presented in the court on Saturday.

Witness Vijaynarayan said the license of Salman's arms was valid till September 22,1998 but since he had the caring permit, he could keep the arms till September 30, 1998. Since Salman got the licenses renewed which were valid till 2002, the possession of arms cannot be considered illegal.
