Jodhpur: Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, who spent the last two nights in Jodhpur central Jail after being found guilty in a 20-year-old blackbuck poaching case, was granted conditional bail by a district and sessions court here on Saturday.
Judge Ravindra Kumar Joshi pronounced the bail order to the actor on a personal bond of Rs 50,000 and two sureties of like amount.
The Judge also ordered Salman not to leave the country without the court’s permission. Salman’s sisters — Alvira and Arpita — were present during the hearing.
On Thursday, the 52-year-old actor was given five-year jail term for killing two blackbucks in Kankani village, near Jodhpur in Rajasthan, during the shooting of a multi-starrer, “Hum Saath Saath Hain” in 1998.
However, the court acquitted his ‘Hum Saath Saath Hain’ co-actors Saif Ali Khan, Neelam, Tabu and Sonali Bendre in the same case.
Salman was facing charges under Section 9/51 of the Wildlife (Protection) Act.
