Salman gets bail, can't leave country without court permission

Salman gets bail, can't leave country without court permission

On Thursday, Judge Dev Kumar Khatri had convicted Salman Khan for poaching two endangered blackbucks in 1998.

Bollywood superstar Salman Khan was granted bail Saturday, his attorney said, while he appeals the prison sentence he'd received two days earlier for illegal poaching in a case that has riveted the country. After the drama of the judges getting transferred just before the bail announcement, Salman Khan was finally let out on a surety of Rs 50,000.

Salman, 52, tensed but smiling, gave a flying kiss to his fans from the balcony of the Galaxy Apartments at Bandra in Mumbai.

The actor's sentencing was based on an accident where he killed two black Bucks, an endangered specie of Antelopes in 1998.

Reportedly the bail documents will reach the Jodhpur jail around 5 pm following which the actor will be released. Both the Khans are among the top 10 most highly paid actors in the world.

"It's a baseless argument by the prosecution that the previous acquittals of Khan by the Rajasthan High Court can not be termed as final because the government's appeal is pending in Supreme Court".

Salman Khan's sister Alvira Khan arrives for his bail hearing at the session court in Jodhpur on Saturday. Khan's attorneys said he was carrying an air gun, which can not be used for hunting an antelope.

Seven others, including actors Saif Ali Khan, Sonali Bendre, Tabu and Neelam, were on trial for the alleged poaching; however, Khan was the only person convicted.

"I am happy that he has got bail".

His attorney Mahesh Bora challenged the trial court order sentencing Khan to five years in prison.

They added that driving under the influence is believed to have been a factor in the accident but no other details were released. Superintendent Nyathi said of the 338 recorded accidents, 25 were fatal compared to last year's 13 fatal accidents.

His next film, "Race 3", is an action thriller scheduled for release later in the year.

According to informed sources, the judge asked for more documents, such as files of previous cases heard by Rural and High Courts before he takes a decision on the actor's bail plea.

The court found him guilty while acquitting four other actors.

"Almost 90 percent of the shoot for (the film) is over and the remaining portions will mostly be shot in India".
