The case under the Wildlife Protection Act, 1972, and sections 143, 144 and 148 of the Indian Penal Code relating to joining assembly with a deadly weapon, will come up for hearing in the Judicial Magistrate's court today, officials have said.

A petition had been filed before the court to grant exemption to Salman from personal appearance as he was busy with the shooting of a film elsewhere, the actor's counsel Hastimal Sarswat said.
