Salman Khan and four other Bollywood actors summoned by a court in an 18-year-old black buck poaching case 

A Jodhpur court on Friday asked actors Salman Khan, Saif Ali Khan, Neelam, Tabu and Sonali Bendre to appear before it on 25 January for recording of statements in the 18-year-old black buck poaching case.

Chief judicial magistrate Dalpat Singh Rajpurohit gave the directions after completion of examination of all the witnesses in the court.

The five actors have been accused of poaching two black bucks-protected under the Wildlife Protection Act- near Kankani village in Jodhpur while shooting for the film 'Hum Saath Saath Hain' in 1998, while actor Salman Khan is also facing trial for possession of illegal firearms that were used to shoot the animals.

The actor is required to be present in the same court on 18 January when the court is to pronounce judgement in an arms act case.
