Salman Khan has filed a defamation suit against a TV news channel in the Bombay high court and has slapped damages worth 100 crore.

Salman was accused of poaching a chinkara at Bhawad near Jodhpur and another chinkara at Ghoda farms during the shooting of his film, Hum Saath Saath Hain, in 1998.

In a suit filed before a division bench of the HC in August this year, Khan claimed a sting operation conducted by the channel in the 1998 chinkara poaching case was malicious and defamatory. He wants the channel to be restrained from releasing or making public in any way, any part of that sting operation.

The channel claimed in the sting operation “witnesses claimed they saw Khan shoot the endangered chinkaras in Jodhpur”. However, later the “witness/es turned hostile and claimed the video was doctored”.


In July this year, the Rajasthan HC acquitted Khan in two cases related to poaching.


  1. Great Media deserve this……Salman should also file case against all media for the recent controversy, where media misquoted his statement on “Artist and Terrorist” and accuse him wrongly…….Indian media is pathetic media in the world, they only care about TRP…..

  2. Salman Khan should also file a defemation case against these paid media house and paid reporters like Arnab Goswami.
    I know this will give a huge TRP to Arnab as Salman would be associated with this. but enough is enough, Arnab has crossed limits this time.
