PETA condemns Salman Khan's bail in blackbuck poaching case

Salman Khan's bail order expected after lunch, judge hearing case transferred

"Besides this, he (Salman Khan) has been acquitted in all the other cases of poaching on the basis of the prosecution's failure to prove the allegations and in such a condition, his sentence should be suspended", he argued. He, however, was granted bail and released on Saturday after paying a bond of Rs.50,000 and two sureties of like amount. But Mr. Khan appealed the decision, and the sentence was suspended.

After spending two nights in a Jodhpur jail, actor Salman Khan returned home to a hero's welcome with thousands of fans lined up at the Mumbai airport and outside his Bandra home here on Saturday evening.

He was granted bail by the Jodhpur Sessions Court in the 1998 blackbuck poaching case.

In 2017, he was discharged of five similar offences except for the death of these animals he accidentally shot while filming India box-office movie, "Hum Saath Saath Hain" in 1998.

The four other co-accused - actors Saif Ali Khan, Tabu, Sonali Bendre and Neelam - have been acquitted.

Earlier, the apex court had refused to grant bail to Asaram on various grounds in the two sexual assault cases lodged in Rajasthan and Gujarat.

Meanwhile another Salman's defence counsel Hastimal Saraswat said that they are very confident that the actor will get bail today.

The Bishnoi Samaj had registered the complaint against Salman for killing the two bluckbucks 20 years back as they consider the blackbuck to be the reincarnation of their religious Guru Bhagwan Jambeshwar, also known as Jambaji.

As per a notice issued yesterday by the Registrar General of the Rajasthan High Court, Judge Joshi is one among 87 sessions court judges who have been transferred.

Terming the decision in the actor's case 'unusual, ' the NGO states that "these days, wildlife crime matters are commonly fast-tracked, bail is often denied, and offenders regularly receive seven-year prison sentences".

Defence counsel pronounced the order after hearing on his bail plea and suspension of sentence in the case.

Is this Salman Khan's first time in court? But the actor's legal travails are not yet over as the case will come up for hearing again on May 7.
