Salman KhanBollywood star Salman Khan and three other actors did not appear before a court here in connection with the 1998 blackbuck poaching case in Rajasthan.

The court adjourned the hearing of the case till March 23.
 
Salman has been charged under Section 51 of the Wildlife Protection Act while others under Section 52 of the Act and Section 149 (unlawful assembly) of the IPC.
