Salman poaching case: Tiger will spend one night in jail, order to come out tomorrow

by Vibhuti Gupta, Friday, April 06, 2018

Bhaijaan Salman Khan has been sentenced to five years in prison for killing two rare blackbucks, ending the legal battle, for now, which ran for 20 years. Chief Judicial Magistrate Dev Kumar Khatri, while pronouncing the guilty verdict in the case of killing the protected antelopes, called Salman a "habitual offender" under the wildlife protection laws of the country.


The court has also imposed a fine of Rs. 10,000


With high security, Salman will be taken to the Jodhpur Central Jail where e will spend at least a night in barrack number two. The prison houses rape-accused Asaram Bapu, Bhanwari Devi murder accused Malkhan Singh Vishnoi and Shambhu Lal Regar, arrested for killing a Muslim and blatantly filming the act.


According to reports, Salman has more than Rs. 600 crore worth of unfinished film projects under his belt. 


As of today, the bail hearing is over and all the arguments have been presented, only the order will be read out tomorrow. If the bail does not come through, he will have to stay in jail for at least three more days as the weekend follows.


Just after Salman was found guilty, members of the Bishnoi community, who worship the antelope believing that it is a reincarnation of a 600-year-old guru, celebrated in front of the court.

This case is just one of many, including allegations of killing a homeless man while driving drunk in Mumbai, a charge he was acquitted of. Salman was also booked for keeping a weapon under an expired arms license. But a trial court had acquitted him.


In other cases, he was accused of killing two protected chinkaras in Bhawad and one in Mathania. However, the Rajasthan High Court acquitted him in 2016.


On the work front, Salman has about half a dozen big-budget films in his kitty, including Race 3, Dabangg 3, Kick 2, Bharat, Partner 2, No Entry Mein Entry, Loveratri and Sher Khan. For the small screen, Salman has a comeback season of reality TV show Dus Ka Dum and most likely, a new season of Bigg Boss.


Well, we just hope that this nightmare ends soon!
