With five people trapped under the car the police tried to help them out, but being unable to pull them out a crane was called to lift the car. The crane tried to life the car with its hook on the bumper, but the car slipped once and the second time they lifted the car to help the injured. The injured were then taken to Bhabha Hospital. A case of culpable homicide was registered against Salman, but it couldn’t be proved that it was Salman at the wheel when the incident took place.
While shooting for Hum Saath Saath Hai in Rajasthan, Salman with other Bollywood stars was allegedly involved in killing two blackbucks on the night of October 1 and 2 respectively. The endangered species were killed in the outskirts of Kankani village near Jodhpur. The Bishnoi tribe then registered a case against Salman for poaching under the Wildlife Protection Act. The case went on for years, in 2006 the actor was convicted and was sentenced for a five-year jail, but Salman appealed and the sentence was upheld by the sessions court. Salman was not allowed to leave the country without prior permission from the court. Post which the case was then heard by the High Court and the sentenced was maintained only until the appeal was made in the Supreme Court. Last heard a fresh plea was being considered.
