Delighted post his acquittal in the Arms Act case, Bollywood actor Salman Khan today thanked his fans for their support and good wishes.
'Thank you for all the support and good wishes,' the 'Prem Ratan Dhan Payo' actor tweeted.
Earlier in the day, the Jodhpur CJM Court acquitted the actor in this case.
The Jodhpur District session court had earlier on January 9 fixed January 18 for announcing its decision on the same.
The date for pronouncing the judgment was fixed after the court heard the final arguments from both sides which were completed on January 9.
Magistrate Dalpat Singh Rajpurohit directed the actor to be present in the court during pronouncement of the order.
A case against Khan was registered under the Arms Act earlier in October 1998 for alleged use and possession of arms with expired license during alleged poaching of two black bucks in Kankani village of Rajasthan.
The case was filed by the state's forest department.
Earlier in 2007, the actor spent a week in jail in Jodhpur before being granted bail.
