Jodhpur: The bail order for Salman Khan, who was sentenced to five years imprisonment in the 1998 blackbuck poaching case on Thursday, has been reserved for Saturday, 7th April. One of Salman Khan's lawyers confirmed that the order will be pronounced at 10:30 am tomorrow by the Jodhpur Sessions Court. This means that Salman Khan will spend another night in the Jodhpur Central Jail.
If the actor's bail plea is rejected by the session’s court on Saturday, then his lawyers are expected to move the Rajasthan High Court. Khan's bail plea was moved before the session’s court by his counsel of lawyers soon after Chief Judicial Magistrate Dev Kumar Khatri convicted him for killing two blackbucks in Jodhpur in October 1998, on Thursday.
The actor has been awarded a five-year jail term, in addition to a fine of Rs 10,000. Reading the order convicting Salman Khan for killing two blackbucks on the intervening night of October 1-2, 1998, the chief judicial magistrate on Thursday said that the actor killed the animals for enjoyment. The order also said, "Accused is a famous film actor and any deed done by him will be followed by people, despite knowing this he killed two blackbucks."
