This was one of the four cases against the actor. While the Rajasthan High Court has acquitted him in two cases of Chinkara poaching, trial in the third case of alleged poaching of two blackbucks is still on.

The case under sections 3/25 and 3/27 of the Arms Act was filed against Khan saying he used fire arms with expired licence in the poaching of blackbucks at Kankani near Jodhpur on October 1-2, 1998.

Khan, during his last court appearance on March 10, 2016, had said that he was innocent and was framed in the case by the forest department.
