Salman Khan to be sent to Jodhpur Central Jail, which already has rape accused godman Asaram, Rajsamand’s hate-murder accused Shambhu Lal Raigar, and gang men of notorious gangster Lawrence Bishnoi who once threatened to kill Salman.

A Jodhpur court has sentenced Bollywood superstar Salman Khan to five-year jail term in the 1998 blackbuck poaching case, while other actors — Saif Ali Khan, Tabu, Sonali Bendre and Neelam Kothari — have been acquitted. The Bishnoi Sabha, a community committed to protecting the blackbucks, has decided to appeal against other acquittals. Salman Khan was accused of killing two blackbucks in Bhagoda ki Dhani in Kankani village near Jodhpur on the intervening night of October 1-2, 1998, during the shooting of Hum Saath Saath Hain. He has been convicted under Section 51 of the Wildlife (Protection) Act, which carries the maximum punishment of six years and minimum one-year jail term.

Public Prosecutor Bhawani Singh to CNN News18: “We are happy with the judgment. I haven’t read the complete order. Salman Khan has been given 5 year simple imprisonment and ten thousand fine. If he files an appeal and the court considers it, then he can get the bail.” 

Alok Nath, who has worked with Salman Khan in several films, including Hum Saath Saath Hain, expressed disappointement. “The verdict is coming out after 20 years. I personally feel that this kind of verdict is tragic. I would have appreciated it judges would have levied him a huge penalty and could have been used for their forest department. They should appeal in a higher court if they can,” he told CNN News18.

While Salman Khan’s conviction comes as a big blow to Bollywood, trade analyst Komal Nahta says that there is not much involvement of money in Salman’s Dabangg 3, Kick 2 and Bharat as they all are in pre-production stage and the team has only announced those projects, but Race 3 will face the consequences if the actor is sentenced to a jail time of more than three years. “There’s not much involvement of money whether it’s ‘Bharat’ or ‘Dabangg 3’ or ‘Kick 2’. The only film where money has been invested is ‘Race 3’ and that shouldn’t be a problem unless he is convicted for more than three years, because if that happens, then he will not even be getting bail and the film will get stuck,” he told News18.com.
