After spending two nights at Jodhpur Central Jail, Salman Khan got bail in the 1998 blackbuck poaching case on Saturday. A district and sessions court in Jodhpur granted bail to the actor who is currently lodged at the Jodhpur Central Jail after being sentenced to five years of imprisonment in the case. The actor has been granted bail on the condition that he will have to produce two sureties worth Rs 25,000 and a bail bond of Rs 50,000.
Salman was sentenced to five years imprisonment for killing two blackbucks in Kankani village, near Jodhpur, during the shooting of “Hum Saath Saath Hain”.
Salman’s counsel on Friday had moved a petition in the court for bail and suspension of sentence. The hearing was adjourned on Friday, and deferred to Saturday after district and sessions judge Ravindra Kumar Joshi called for records pertaining to the trial court judgment.
The actor has spent two nights in Jodhpur Central Jail amid tight security. Besides a five-year jail term, Salman was imposed a fine of Rs 10,000.
