Jodhpur: While moving a fresh application in appeal against acquittal of Bollywood star Salman Khan in the Arms Act case on Wednesday, the prosecution has sought the case to be remanded again to the CJM court. District and Sessions Judge (Jodhpur Rural) has fixed next hearing in the matter on January 10.

Chief judicial magistrate had on January 18 this year acquitted the 51-year-old actor saying the prosecution had failed to prove the charges, against which the state government had appealed to the District and Session Court. Public Prosecutor Pokarram Vishnoi said Salman Khan had submitted an application and affidavit in the court in 2004 and told that his arms licence was lost on August 8, 2003. The written information has been given to Senior Police Inspector, Bandra Police Station, Mumbai. While during the trial, a witness, told in his statements that Salman Khan’s arms license was not lost, but the license of the revolver was deposited for renewal. He further said that in 2006, the state government had filed criminal miscellaneous case against Salman Khan on concealing facts, but the court disposed this case in 2016, saying that the fact will be considered in the Arms act case’s decision.

‘We had filed an application in 2006 against the Salman Khan under Section 340 of CrPC in the CJM Court during the Arms Act case trial, but CJM Court acquitted Salman without considering the application. We have demanded remand of the case,’Vishnoi said.
