The Supreme Court on Wednesday issued notice to Salman on account of Rajasthan governmentt`s plea challenging the High Court order suspending his conviction in blackbuck killing case.
Salman has been asked by SC to file a reply within a time period of four weeks. The actor was sentenced to five years prison term by a trial court. The Chinkara blackbuck poaching case dates back to year 1998 when Salman along with Saif Ali Khan, Sonali Bendre, Tabu and Neelam were shooting for their film `Hum Saath Saath Hain`.

On the intervening night of October 1 and 2 in 1998, the actors were accused of poaching two blackbucks in Kankani village near Jodhpur. However, what followed afterward was a series of protests against Salman Khan, as he was seen as the prime accused in killing of the endangered animal.

In December 2013, Salman Khan’s counsel had said that there was no direct evidence against the actor that he carried arms with expired license during the alleged Blackbuck poaching at the nearby Kankani village in 1998.

In February 2006, Salman Khan was convicted under the Wild Life Act for poaching a blackbuck 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.
