Salman Khan’s counsel H M Saraswat said the final arguments in the case began on September 13 last year with the prosecution counsel citing the statements of the eyewitnesses of the case. “After the completion of the prosecution’s arguments on October 23, we began our arguments on October 28 last year and completed on February 4,” he said.

Last year in January, Salman had testified in 1998 case and pleaded not guilty. The actor, in his statement, had said "Only the first forensic report of Dr Nepalia saying that the animal died of "natural causes" was true and the rest of the evidence is false". It may be noted that prior to the statements by Ram and Mangi, the prosecution had read out the statements of Harish, Chogaram and Arun Yadav.

The case was registered against Salman Khan on the charges of illegal weapons he used to kill two black bucks (Chinkara).

Last year, in September, 2 witnesses identified Salman and the other accused actors as culprits in the matter. Statements of witnesses Shera Ram and Mangi Lal were read out in the Jodhpur Court on Monday.
