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.
