A Jodhpur court hearing the blackbuck poaching case against Salman Khan will rule tomorrow if the Bollywood star needs to seek its permission every time he travels abroad. The court is hearing Khans plea against his conviction by a trial court, which had handed him a five-year jail sentence for killing two blackbucks 20 years ago in Kankani village near here. Public prosecutor P R Bishnoi opposed the application for exemption from travel permission, arguing that the trial will be over soon. The court reserved its order on the application and will pronounce it tomorrow. He said the driver, whose Gypsy is said to have been used in the alleged poaching, had been declared an unreliable witness by the high court. His lawyers claimed Khan was implicated in the case on the basis of false evidence and witnesses. A trial court had convicted Khan on April 5 for killing The court had acquitted his four co-actors Saif Ali Khan, Tabu, Neelam and Sonali Bendre. The district and sessions court began the hearing the plea against that conviction a month later.
