Salman Jailed For 5 Years: What The Court Said

Apr 05, 2018 09:21 PM IST India India

Superstar Salman Khan was convicted by the Jodhpur court in the 1998 blackbuck poaching case. The other four actors Saif Ali Khan, Sonali Bendre, Tabu and Neelam Kothari were acquitted. The court delivered a sentence of five years imprisonment and a fine of Rs 10,000 to Salman. The maximum sentence is six years, but Salman's lawyers requested a minimal sentence and early probation, while the prosecution was asking for the maximum quantum of punishment. If Salman had been sentenced to less than three years, he could have been immediately granted bail and given a month to appeal his sentence at a higher court. However, since he was given a sentence of more than three years, he would be taken into custody and be transferred to Jodhpur Central Jail, pending further appeals. Salman Khan's bail application in the Sessions Court is scheduled to be heard on Friday morning, which means he has to spend Thursday night in Jodhpur Central Jail.
