Rajasthan Govt to give protection to Salman's former driver

Jaipur, July 28 (IBNS) : The Rajasthan Government has assured protection to actor Salman Khan's former driver as he claims to have witnessed the superstar shoot down chinkara, an endanged gazelle, in 1988, media reports said.

Harish Dulani, the driver of the Gypsy used by the actor on an alleged hunt, has been reported missing in the 18-year-old case.

He surfaced on Wednesday and told  NDTV that Salman Khan did shoot the animal  he could never testify in court because he was threatened.

Assuring his protection, the Rajasthan Government has said that it has decided to move the Supreme Court against the actor's acquittal.

"He has never approached us for protection but if he asks in writing we will provide security," Rajasthan Home Minister Gulab Chand Kataria said.

Dulani had made a similar statement before a magistrate 18 years ago, but went missing since then. He claims that he was not absconding. "My father received threats, I got scared and left home. If I had police protection, I could have given a statement," he said.

On Monday, the court said there is not enough evidence that the 50-year-old star had killed two chinkaras in September, 1998.
