On April 5, the Jodhpur Court found actor Salman Khan guilty of poaching two blackbucks in 1998, during a shoot for the film Hum Saath Saath Hain in Rajasthan. His co-stars from the film, Saif Ali Khan, Tabu, Neelam and Sonali Bendre who were allegedly also present at the time of the poaching, have been acquitted by the court. The court has awarded Salman a sentence of five years along with a fine of Rs 10000. Salman was first accused of poaching in September 1998.

Post the hearing, Salman was taken to the Jodhpur Central Jail where Asaram Bapu is lodged in a rape case. The Jodhpur Sessions Court has accepted Salman Khan’s bail plea for the case and a hearing has been scheduled for tomorrow.

Actor Salman Khan reached Jodhpur on April 4 along with sisters Arpita Khan and Alvira Khan. He arrived at the Jodhpur court today morning. While the prosecution has asked for maximum punishment for Salman, the actor will be taken to Jodhpur Central Jail post the sentencing. Arguments are currently underway on the quantum of his sentence. Khan’s lawyer are pleading for minimum sentence.
