Salman Khan may appear before court in Jodhpur on Thursday

Jodhpur, July 5  (IANS) Actor Salman Khan may appear before the court of the District and  Sessions Judge at Jodhpur on Thursday for verification of bail bonds  submitted by him in a case of illegal possession of arms that he  allegedly used to kill blackbucks in 1998.Salman was acquitted  by the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate on January 18, 2017 under Arms  Act case. He had filed a bail bond in a higher court, the District and  Sessions judge, in the case.Salman and a few other Bollywood  actors were accused of poaching blackbucks on the night of October 1,  1998 during the shooting of Hindi movie "Hum Saath-Saath Hain". The  "Dabangg" star was also accused of carrying and using illegal arms,  after which a case under the Arms Act was registered against him.Salman  may also remain present in hearing of a case of poaching of blackbucks  at Kankani village near Jodhpur -- which also happened during the  shooting of the film in 1998.However, neither the advocate H.M.  Saraswat representing Salman in the local courts, nor the police  officials have confirmed Salman's arrival.The state government  on March 7 filed an appeal challenging the decision of the Chief  Judicial Magistrate acquittal of Salman. This is pending for  adjudication in the District and Sessions court."Khan has to  come for verification of bail bonds before the appellate court as it is a  legal procedure," said Jitendar Singh Khichi, a lawyer practicing in  the criminal side at the High Court."It is not necessary to come  tomorrow and Khan may also file an application seeking exemption from  personal appearance for tomorrow," Khichi said while talking about the  possibility.Besides, final arguments in a case against Salman  and other film stars for alleged poaching of two blackbucks in Kankani  village near Jodhpur will also begin from Thursday.Salman and  others are continuously filing applications for exemption from personal  presence as they reside elsewhere, but on Thursday if Salman is here he  will have to remain present before the court.
