A local court in Jodhpur in Rajasthan has allowed film actor Salman Khan, facing trial in poaching cases, to travel abroad later in the month.
Chief Judicial Magistrate Mohammad Salim Malik and Judicial Magistrate Bulaki Das Vyas accepted the applications submitted by Khan's counsel and allowed him to leave the country to visit Abu Dhabi by releasing his passport.
Seeking the permission of the court, Khan's counsel Hastimal Saraswat pleaded that the actor wanted to go to Abu Dhabi from February 21 to 24 for delivering a lecture on 'Education Without Border' in a conference to be attended by 500 students from 17 countries, besides senior business executives and academicians from around the world.
Khan would be sharing his experiences and his journey to stardom in the Mumbai film industry with the audience, his counsel told the courts.
The actor, who is facing trial in the case of hunting of black bucks and chinkaras in the forests near Jodhpur and also a case under the Arms Act, would have to submit his passport to the court on his return.
Khan is the main accused in the poaching cases registered in 1998 when he was shooting for the Sooraj Barjatya's film Hum Saath Saath Hain.
