It has been 18 long years since Salman Khan was accused of killing a Blackbuck and two Chinkaras. The lower court had found Khan guilty and sentenced him to one and five years of imprisonment for killing the Blackbuck and the Chinkaras respectively. Khan then appealed to the High Court.
And the Rajasthan High Court in Jodhpur has pronounced its judgment -- Salman Khan has been acquitted on the charges of the Chinkara case.
While his fans celebrated the verdict, others saw a pattern in the verdicts involving Salman Khan. Twitter has turned into a war zone.
Many people called out the High Court for what they believed was an unfair verdict.

Of course Salman Khan didn't kill any blackbuck. All blackbucks have long been safely deposited in Swiss banks.— Anuradha (@anuradha_kush) July 25, 2016
Salman Khan acquitted.— TheBBC (@BabaBakChod) July 25, 2016
Here is the verdict: That blackbuck was about to commit suicide. Being Human, Salman Khan just helped it to do that.

The judiciary should propound a doctrine of anticipatory acquittal especially for Salman Khan. It could save his and everyone else's time.— Nigel Britto (@NigelBritto) July 25, 2016
