  • Bollywood in shock over superstar's jail term

In a late night development, 87 judges of a Rajasthan district and sessions court have been transferred which includes, Jodhpur District and Sessions court Judge Ravindra Kumar Joshi, who heard Salman Khan's bail plea on Friday.

Khan will stay in jail today, after the Jodhpur Sessions Court delayed the order on the actor's bail plea till Saturday.

The Hindi film industry finally heaves a sigh of relief after superstar Salman Khan was granted bail on Saturday in the blackbuck poaching case.

The 52-year-old was sentenced to five years in prison on Thursday after being convicted for killing two blackbucks, an endangered antelope, in 1998.

Khan was found guilty under Section 51 of the Act while he was in Jodhpur during the shooting of "Hum Saath Saath Hain".

The judge, Chief Judicial Magistrate Dev Kumar Khatri, said that Salman was a "habitual offender" while pronouncing the judgment.

Next up were Salman's sisters, Alvira and Arpita, who had been with him on Thursday when the Jodhpur court announced the verdict.

Fellow actors Saif Ali Khan, Sonali Bendre, Tabu and Neelam, all of whom were also accused in the case, were acquitted in the matter. The actor, who slept on a rug on the floor yesterday, was given tablets by the jail doctors to keep his blood pressure under control. His bail hearing was adjourned by the sessions judge. He also questioned the authority for letting free the other accused while he also said, "that Salman was out hunting alone in the middle of the night in a remote area outside Jodhpur". In his arguments, defence counsel Mahesh Bora cited various loopholes in the investigation arguing that no investigation in any of the cases of poaching proved that Salman used firearms.

Mr. Khan's lawyer Anand Desai said in a statement to the press that they "respect the decision" of the court.

The actor will next be seen in Remo D'Souza's Race 3 with Jacqueline Fernandez and Bobby Deol.

Jodhpur Central Jail houses three more high profile inmates apart from Salman - Malkhan Singh Vishnoi, Shambhu Lal, and Asaram Bapu. They prayed to give the actor bail.
