Caveat: Salman Khan was acquitted by the Rajasthan High Court on 25 July in two cases pertaining to allegedly killing deer on 26 and 28 September 1998. The third case, which pertains to allegedly killing black bucks on the intervening night of 1 and 2 October 1998, is pending before the trial courts, and no verdict has been arrived at as yet. Another case related to the incident, filed on 15 October 1998 at PS Luni where Khan is accused of violating the Arms Act, is also pending before trial courts. It was earlier reported that the actor had been acquitted in the black buck case as well.

Predictably, Twitter went berserk:
