The other accused in the case Bollywood actors Saif Ali Khan, Tabu, Sonali Bendre, Neelam - and a local named Dushyant Singh have been acquitted in the case.
A Sessions Court here will pronounce its order on the bail application of actor Salman Khan, sentenced to five years' imprisonment in a blackbuck poaching case, on Saturday. He was among 134 judges transferred by the registrar general of the Rajasthan High Court.
Difficulties with the justice system aside, Salman Khan has been busy pursuing his acting career.
Khan has made a series of blockbuster hits in the last few years with the latest in December, Tiger Zinda Hai, grossing more than three billion rupees (RM178.2 million) at the box office. He was later acquitted of that account. The actors were accused of being involved in the hunting trip but were all acquitted. In Rajasthan, the judges are usually transferred between April 15 to April 30 every year on the recommendation of a committee set up by the High Court. As per reports the actor will leave jail this evening once his bail bonds are verified and filled out. The verification process takes about an hour after which he can be released.
Khan's team will now finish the paperwork and the actor is expected to be released by 7 pm. Who doesn't make a mistake? During his trial, Khan had argued that his driver had been behind the wheel, but the judge said it was the actor who had been driving under the influence of alcohol.
Salman went directly to the airport from the jail. The judge has now deferred the judgment till 1.30-2pm post lunch. The defendants had filed a 51-page bail application saying that the witnesses are not reliable and can not be relied upon.
