Blackbuck Poaching Case: Salman Khan Is STRONG & Genuine; Bollywood's Heart Goes Out!

Blackbuck Poaching Case: Salman Khan Is STRONG & Genuine; Bollywood's Heart Goes Out!

Bollywood actor Preity Zinta, who is a close friend of Salman Khan, rushed to Jodhpur to visit the actor, who is now lodged in the central jail.

Another day of struggle for Salman Khan as the court has reserved the order for Saturday.

His lawyer Hastimal Saraswat is ready with a 51-page bail application, where 54 grounds have been raised for the judge to consider and grant the convicted actor bail.

Jail superintendent Vikram Singh, while briefing the media on the celebrity inmate, said Khan was treated as a normal prisoner and no special treatment was given to him last night. "I don't know what to say", he said, hoping that Salman's battery of lawyers will appeal for justice in a higher court.

The defense cited the unreliability of the eyewitness and the acquittal of the actor in other similar cases against him as reasons for granting him bail.

106 spent his night in Jodhpur Central Jail sleeping on the floor.

Khan was also fined 10,000 rupees (£109).




Legal counsel Anand Desai pointed out how Salman has been acquitted in other cases where the facts were the same as the 1998 poaching case.

On Instagram or Twitter, there has been no post from Preity about visiting Jodhpur but a video of the actress exiting Jodhpur airport and quickly making her way to a waiting vehicle is being circulated on social media. The law has the provision of a maximum imprisonment of six years.

His sisters Alvira and Arpita, as well as bodyguard Shera were at the court when the verdict was announced. Salman Khan was booked for possessing an unlicensed.22 rifle and a.32 revolver and using them to poach two blackbucks. That decision is now being challenged in the Supreme Court.

The actor, 52, who has starred in more than 100 films, claimed he did not shoot the two blackbuck deer - an endangered species - in 1998.

Bollywood actor Salman Khan arrives at a court to hear the verdict in the long-running wildlife poaching case against him in Jodhpur April 5, 2018.

Four other stars also accused in the case - Saif Ali Khan, Sonali Bendre, Tabu and Neelam - were acquitted by Chief Judicial Magistrate Dev Kumar Khatri.
