Salman Khan is convicted in the 1998 blackbuck poaching case. The actor has been sentenced to five years of jail for killing two blackbucks in September 1998 while shooting for Hum Saath Saath Hai in Jodhpur. The actor and his legal team will apply for bail and suspension of the sentence tomorrow at a Sessions Court in Jodhpur at 10:30 am but before that, the Race 3 actor has to spend the night in Jodhpur Central Jail.
DIG Of Jodhpur Vikram Singh addressed the media and has given details about the actor. Singh told the superstar hasn’t eaten food While revealing more details, he said, “Salman Khan has been given number 106 and is lodged in Ward number 2. He was made to undergo a medical test and has no medical issues. He hasn’t made any demands. We’ll give him jail uniform tomorrow. Multiple-layer security has been put up for his ward.” He also added saying, “Everyone has to sleep on floor and Salman has been given four blankets for that. Right now there is no other prisoner in his barrack. ”
Salman’s lawyer Anand Desai will move to Sessions court to get bail for the actor. In a statement, the lawyer said, “We respect the decision of the Hon’ble Court. While we are studying the judgement it just came as a surprise, as the entire investigation, and facts of this case were the same as those for which Salman has been acquitted by the Hon’ble High Court of Rajasthan in two cases, and even by the Hon’ble CJM in the Arms Act matter for the alleged offence on the very same night as is the subject matter of the present case.
Also, in the present case the Hon’ble Court has acquitted all the 5 co-accused which would imply that Salman was out hunting alone in the middle of the night in a remote area outside Jodhpur. We have preferred an appeal to the Hon’ble Sessions Court and applied for an urgent hearing today. The Hon’ble Sessions Court will hear the appeal for suspension of the sentence/bail at 10:30 tomorrow.”
