Superstar Salman Khan walks out of custody after spending two-nights in Jail.
The Jodhpur sessions court granted bail to the Bollywood actor in the blackbuck poaching case of 1998 with two bonds of Rs 50,000 each.
A day before, a Jodhpur court had convicted the Bollywood star for killing two blackbucks, an endangered species, 19 years ago while shooting for the film Hum Saath Saath Hain, and sentenced him to five years in jail.
The other co-accused in the case, actors Tabu, Saif Ali Khan, Neelam and Sonali Bendre were acquitted of all charges.
Today’s judgement comes as a relief for the actor. Salman’s team will now finish paperwork and the actor is expected to be released by 7 pm, later today.
However, he will have to seek permission from the court before travelling abroad. His next hearing is scheduled for May 7.
