Summons likely against Salman, Aishwarya
Summons are likely to be issued to film stars Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai for ''not co-operating'' with the Gujarat forest department officials in an investigation into the alleged poaching of two chinkaras (Indian gazelles) by members of a film party in the Banni area of Kutch district in September.
Senior forest department sources said notices had already been issued early this month to the two film stars, asking them to appear for questioning before the investigating officials on November 16. But they had sought time, stating they were busy shooting.
The department has given them time till November 20 to appear before the officials, failing which summons are to be issued on them to appear at Bhuj, the district headquarters. Investigation into the matter had begun following a complaint lodged by residents of Sumrasar village.
The film unit had camped in Kutch district in the first week of September for the shooting of a film Hum to Sanam Dil de Chuke, being produced by Sanjay Bhansali.
Besides the film stars, an army officer and some influential people of the area are also suspected to have participated in the alleged killing of the animals.
