Salman Khan sentenced 5 year jail-term

06 April 2018

A court in India Thursday sentenced leading Bollywood actor Salman Khan to five years in jail for poaching rare antelopes in western state of Rajasthan almost two decades back.

Khan's verdict was passed on Thursday in an Indian court at Rajasthan city of Jodhpur.

Indian media reports suggest it could take days for Khan's legal team to apply for bail and appeal the conviction over the 20-year-old case which threatens to derail his illustrious career.

The Prosecutor lawyer Mahipal Bishnoi said, "The court has given a five-year jail term and fined Salman Khan 10,000 rupees ($150)".

Salman Khan has been associated with two criminal cases. He faces between one and six years in prison for the crime that has gripped cinema-obsessed India for decades.

In the blackbuck poaching case, the other four actors - Saif Ali Khan, Tabu, Neelam and Sonali Bendre have left the court after the legal procedures were completed against them and are boarding their flight to Mumbai soon on 5 April 2018.

He is widely known to be one of the most commercially successful actors of Bollywood.

The case continued from 2002 till 2015, when on May 6, the trial court found him guilty and sentenced him to five years' imprisonment.

Arrangements have been made to house Salman in the Jodhpur jail, which houses other high-profile convicts including Asaram Bapu.

Not losing heart, she then quietly tried to scale the wall of the building to reach the first floor apartment complex of the Khans, but was espied by the security guards who informed the Bandra police station. Fellow Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, at number 8 on the list, is the only Indian actor to have earned more than him a year ago.

Considering how it took nearly two decades for this saga to come to a conclusion, the internet has exploded. Salman Khan was facing charges under Section 51 of the Wildlife (Protection) Act and the other actors have been charged under Section 51 read with Section 149 (unlawful assembly) of the Indian Penal Code.

Salman Khan is often called the "bad boy" of Indian cinema for a history of being surrounded by controversies. At the time of announcing the order, Salman would have to be in a court.
