Bollywood superstar Salman Khan returns to his Mumbai residence, the Galaxy Apartments. He had spent 48 hours at the Jodhpur Central Jail after being convicted in the 20-year-old blackbuck poaching case. He was being accompanied by his sisters Arpita and Alvira in his flight from Jodhpur to Mumbai. Thousands are waiting outside his house and the actor finally showed up at his balcony to greet and smile at them. In a big relief for Salman Khan, the Jodhpur Sessions Court on Saturday granted the actor bail in 1998 blackbuck poaching case. The court has granted bail on surety of Rs 50,000 and set May 7 as the next date of hearing. Meanwhile, the Bishnoi community, which is committed to protecting the endangered deer species that the actor killed during the shooting of Hum Saath Saath Hain, has decided to appeal against the bail in Rajasthan High Court. Judge Ravindra Kumar Joshi, who presided over the bail hearing, and trial court judge Dev Kumar Khatri, who had convicted Salman Khan and sentenced him to five years in jail, are among the judges transferred in Rajasthan. The transfers are reportedly part of routine reshuffle carried out in the beginning of April every year in Rajasthan.
