After that, every time the 52-year-old actor had travelled abroad, he had to inform the court.

The actor’s counsel Mahesh Bora applied for relief saying that Salman Khan's work demands him to travel abroad frequently.

The case against Salman Khan was brought by and fought for two decades by members of the Bishnoi community, who worship antelopes and the blackbuck is considered to be especially sacred.

Salman Khan’s co-stars from the movie including Saif Ali Khan, Tabu, Neelam Kothari and Sonali Bendre, were, however, acquitted by the Jodhpur court, even though they were present at the time of the shooting.
