The Rajasthan High Court held hearing of Salman Khan's appeal in the controversial blackbuck poaching case today. Salman Khan had challenged the High Court's verdict against his five-year jail term and had appealed to the Sessions Court. However, today's proceedings were adjourned by the High Court and it has now asked the 'Dabbang' actor to be present in court for the next hearing on July 4. Last year in April, Salman was convicted in the 1998 blackbuck poaching case and was sentenced to five years of imprisonment. 

Apart from paying a fine of Rs 10,000, Salman spent two nights in the Jodhpur Central jail before being released on bail last year. The poaching incident took place during the filming of Hum Saath Saath Hai in October 1998. The co-accused in the case Saif Ali Khan, Tabu, Neelam and Sonali Bendre were acquitted last year.

Salman has been accused of killing two blackbucks in Bhagoda ki Dhani in Kankani village near Jodhpur on the intervening night of October 1-2, 1998. The court convicted Salman last year and he was charged under Section 51 of the Wildlife (Protection) Act. Salman Khan is currently shooting for Dabbang 3. Couple of days back, the actor reached Madhya Pradesh to begin shooting for the film which will be the third installment in the Dabbang franchise.
