During the shoot of the movie Hum Saath Saath Hain, Salman Khan allegedly went on a shooting expedition along with Saif Ali Khan, Neelam, Sonali Bendre and Tabu, killing two black bucks in the Kankani area of Jodhpur.

The local Bishnoi community, who consider the black buck to be the reincarnation of their religious Guru Bhagwan Jambeshwar, filed a case against Salman Khan and other actors, along with one local person named Dushyant Singh.

Earlier, Salman got a reprieve in the case owing to his acquittal by the Chief Judicial Magistrate Dalpat Singh in the Arms Act case.

In two other cases, Salman Khan allegedly went on shooting expeditions killing two chinkaras in Bhawad area and another one in Ghoda Farms. He was, however, acquitted by the Rajasthan High Court in July, 2016, in the Chinkara poaching case.
