Poaching case against Salman Khan gave him one more acquittal in the last two years and he is enjoying a wonderful life. This is the second time Salman has been acquitted in a criminal case. Last year, the Bombay High Court had acquitted him in the 2002 accident case that killed one man and injured four others on a Mumbai pavement. The recent acquittal dates back to 1988 when the Bollywood actor had been accused of shooting to antelopes, which are protected animals, in separate incidents while filming a movie in Rajasthan. Being human he got the reprieve as the pellets recovered from the vehicle did not match with those recovered from the possession of Khan. Salman is lucky and time and again and no rule of the law can implicate him as his money power makes him powerful enough to come out of ticklish situations not once but twice.
