Filmmaker and actor Samir Soni whose wife Neelam Kothari has been acquitted from black bug poaching case has said that there has been injustice done with Salman Khan.
Samir Soni was interacting with media at Mumbai domestic airport when he was returning from Jodhpur after his wife Neelam Kothari acquitted from ‘Black Poaching Case’ along with Saif Ali Khan, Sonali Bendre and Tabu on Thursday in Mumbai.
Salman Khan has been sentenced to 5 years of imprisonment after being found guilty by a Jodhpur court in the 1998 blackbuck poaching case. The incident took place when the actor was in Jodhpur to shoot for his film, ‘Hum Saath Saath Hain’. While he has been convicted, his co-stars, including Neelam, who played Salman’s sister in the film, have been found to be not guilty by the court, talking about court verdict, Samir said, “We are happy for us but very disappointed for Salman (Khan). I am feeling very bad and I don’t think complete justice has been prevailed. I think he has faced injustice with this judgment”
When asked Samir whether this judgment came as a relief to Neelam Kothari and her family, he said, “Obviously, for almost 20 years, there was sword which hanged on us and there used to be a fear that anytime a phone call can come for the arrest but I feeling bad for Salman”
When Asked Samir what he expected with court judgment, he said, “We didn’t knew what to expect. Out of five, four witnesses refused to identify Salman but court gave judgment on the basis of only one witness which I think is bit strange”
After the court verdict came out yesterday, Salman Khan spend his entire day at Jodhpur central jail and now, according to recent reports, Salman Khan to spend another day in jail as Jodhpur court reserves bail order till tomorrow.
