The matter is linked to a case against Salman Khan under the Arms Act, in which the actor had been accused of keeping arms with an expired licence and using these for poaching.
Salman Khan was present in the court through video-conferencing, when district and sessions Judge Raghvendra Kachhwal pronounced the order, acquitting him of the charge on Thursday.
This is the second time Salman Khan has been freed from the allegation.
Earlier, the court of the chief judicial magistrate had also absolved him of the charge, after which the state had challenged the decision in the district and sessions court.
Salman Khan had filed the affidavit in the court in 2003 stating that he had lost his arms licence.
The public prosecutor contended that it was an act of misleading the court purposefully stating that Salman Khan knew that his licence was not lost, but Judge Kachhwal rejected his arguments and provided relief to Salman Khan by absolving him of the allegation.
