Jodhpur (Rajasthan) [India], Jan. 18 (ANI): The Jodhpur High Court will on Wednesday pronounce its verdict in the Salman Khan Arms Act Case. Earlier on January 9, the Jodhpur District session court had fixed January 18 for announcing its decision on the same. The date for pronouncing the judgment was fixed after the court heard the final arguments from both the sides which were completed on January 9. Magistrate Dalpat Singh Rajpurohit directed Khan to be present in the court during pronouncement of the order. A case against Khan had been registered under the Arms Act by police in October 1998 for alleged use and possession of arms with expired license during alleged poaching of two black bucks in Kankani village of Rajasthan. The case was filed by the forest department. If convicted, Khan could face imprisonment for seven years. (ANI)
