Salman Khan was convicted in the blackbuck poaching case. A Jodhpur Court sentenced him to five years imprisonment. ‘Being a popular actor and knowing his deeds will be followed by many people, The Accused hunted two blackbucks,’ said Chief Judicial Magistrate Dev Kumar Khatri while delivering the judgement.
After the Judge pronounced the quantum of punishment, Salman Khan, his sisters Alvira and Arpita broke down in the court. Tears rolled down from their cheeks & it was an emotional moment.
As the jail term awarded is more than three years, Salman Khan couldn’t obtain bail immediately. He was taken into custody in the court premises and brought to Jodhpur Central Jail. Prisoner Number 106 was allotted to the ‘Dabangg’ Star.
Salman’s Lawyers moved the session court for bail. The bail petition is likely to come up for hearing on Friday.
