No one killed the people on the footpath, no one killed the Black Bucks, They just disappeared.
Salman Khan can stop “Being Human” now since he has no facade to put up and nothing to be scared of anymore. The Judiciary’s order of acquittal first on the Hit and run case and now a clear acquittal on the illegal poaching of Black-bucks is only the shattering of the little faith we had in the judiciary. After all, it was expected since we at least had the eye witnesses (who again, disappeared) to contribute to Sallu Bhai’s legal proceedings only to hope like hell that a fellow Black Buck would report the crime. If people couldn’t have a voice of their own, what hope do we have from species that can’t even communicate as their only language is instinct. Must’ve committed suicide.
In February 2006, Salman Khan was convicted under the Wild Life Act for poaching a Chinkara at Bhawad near Jodhpur during the shooting of film Hum Saath Saath Hain in September 1998. Salman Khan was sentenced to one-year imprisonment and was slapped a fine of Rs 5,000. Salman was accused of hunting two Chinkaras at Bhawad in Mathania near Jodhpur on September 26, 1998, and another Chinkara at Ghoda farms two days later on September 28th, while he was in Jodhpur shooting for “Hum Saath Saath Hain” He had earlier appealed before the High Court challenging the lower court’s verdict that had handed him one and five years’ imprisonment in the two separate cases of poaching.
It doesnt end here. What is even scarier is that the judiciary took 18 years to decide that the gun shot from Salman’s gun was not actually his. (Taking from his song – “Aisa pehli baar hua hai 17-18 saalon mein.”). Atleast there is some hope for the country wherein a celebrity’s case makes us realise how slow the judicial process in India is. This sad state of affairs sets the precedent for all his fan following to commit the same crime that he did and run scot free since it only goes to believe that our system has failed yet again.
