Jodhpur : Prosecution on Tuesday began its arguments in the Rajasthan High Court on an appeal by actor Salman Khan against his one-year sentence by a lower court in the chinkara poaching case of 1998.

Additional Advocate General K L Thakur read the FIR and the statements of the prosecution witness and driver of Khan’s vehicle on the night of alleged poaching in justification of three cases of poaching against the actor.

The defence had raised question on the intentions of the prosecution to begin the investigation in one case and later adding two more cases of poaching at different places on different dates barely relying on the statements of driver Harish Dulani, who could not be examined in the court ever.

Citing his statement, Thakur told the court that the forest department learnt about the poaching of this case of Bhawad, during the statements of Dulani in another case of poaching that had taken place on October 1-2, 1998 in Kankani village wherein 2 black bucks were killed by allegedly by Khan.
