Salman Khan gets bail in 1998 black buck poaching case


Khan, 52, was found guilty of violating wildlife laws by killing a blackbuck, an endangered species of antelope, in 1998. Veteran actor Shatrughan Sinha who is a close friend of the Khan family spent Thursday evening with Salman's father Salim Khan and his daughter and actor Sonakshi Sinha was also there with them.

Judge Ravindra Kumar Joshi was transferred along with several other judicial officers on Friday night, but considering the importance of the Salman Khan Blackbuck pouching case, he chose to hear the bail hearing for the actor on Saturday morning.

District and Sessions Judge Ravindra Kumar Joshi heard the arguments of prosecution and defence which lasted for about an hour, defence counsel Mahesh Bora said.

Huge crowds braved scorching temperatures to gather outside the building for the ruling.

"If animal abusers now expect to get bail easily or to have their cases dragged out, they are in for a major surprise", the NGO stated.

Blackbuck poaching case: What are your thoughts on Salman Khan's bail? The heavily muscled actor was acquitted in two related cases.

Visually impaired girls from the Andh Kanya Prakash Gruh school for the blind celebrate the release of Bollywood actor Salman Khan from Jodphur Central jail following a court decision to grant bail to the actor, in Ahmedabad on April 7, 2018.

The Rajasthan High Court acquitted Mr. Khan in 2016 of shooting the protected deer, known as chinkara, overturning previous convictions. That decision is now being challenged in the Supreme Court. Charges against the actor under the Arms Act for possession of an unlicensed gun were dropped.

The community had pursued the case against Khan for nearly two decades. His auto allegedly ran over them while they were sleeping on a street in the western city of Mumbai. Yet somehow, Salman Khan as a brand is one that only keeps on giving. It said that key evidence - including testimony from a policeman who had since died - was not reliable.

How big is Salman Khan? .

Khan left Jodphur Central Jail and arrived at Jodphur Airport, and was given security in transit for the journey.

His fans include the middle-class English-speaking audiences as well as poor slum dwellers for whom the 350-rupee ($5.20; £3.40) tickets do not come cheap.

In the year 2003, he had won India's prestigious Filmfare award for his debut movie "Company" and followed it with a series of hit films like "Saathiya, ' 'Yuva, ' and 'Omkara" which were not only critically acclaimed but did commercially well in the Box Office.

The Bollywood industry is set to lose £109 million (₹1000 crores) if Khan is imprisoned.

Is the case denting his popularity?
