Salman Khan Verdict: Lawyer Anand Desai Releases Statement, Says Shocked by Judgement

Salman Khan Verdict: Lawyer Anand Desai Releases Statement, Says Shocked by Judgement”

The case continued from 2002 till 2015, when on May 6, the trial court found him guilty and sentenced him to five years' imprisonment.

The police said that Salman Khan will be taken straight from the court to jail and all arrangements have been made for the same. Later, the High Court dropped charges under the Arms Act against him. How this news spread is not known, but now it has been confirmed that Salman will have to serve five years in jail. October 12, 1998: Salman Khan, arrested in the connection with the poaching of endangered animals, and subsequently, granted bail. Jodhpur District Presiding Officer Devkumar Khatri articulated Salman liable for killing two blackbucks, which are an imperiled species, on October 1, 1998, amid a chasing campaign close Jodhpur, Rajasthan. "Despite this, the accused hunted two blackbucks". The statement also said that the judgment "came as a surprise" and that the acquittal of all the five coaccused implied that "Salman was out hunting alone in the middle of the night in a remote area outside Jodhpur". "I don't know what to say", he said, hoping that Salman's "battery of lawyers" will appeal for justice in a higher court.

24 August 2007: The Session Court upheld the conviction doled out in April 2006 and dismissed Salman Khan's appeal. Salman has filed a bail application in a sessions court which is likely to be heard on Friday. Salman Khan is issued a notice. Heavy security has been deployed at Barrack no 2 as one of the inmate in the Jodhpur Central jail, gangster Lawrence Bishnoi, has allegedly threatened Salman.

The other co-accused in the case - Sonali Bendre, Saif Ali Khan, Neelam and Tabu - have been acquitted. The maximum punishment for the offence is 6 years. If the sentence was less than three years, the actor could have applied for bail in the same court immediately. "It was only after the intervention by a high court that he was acquitted".

"I want the judge to give him the most minimum sentence possible, because Bhai is still young and can act in many more movies", said Santosh More, 31-year-old pharmaceutical factory worker from Maharashtra's Sangli district.

Khan, one of India's most recognizable and bankable actors, was found guilty of killing two blackbucks, a type of antelope found in the country, while working on a film in the northwestern Indian state of Rajasthan in the 1998. This is overturned after an appeal.

With as many as eight big-ticket films either already on the floors or being planned with him in the lead and a TV game show in the pipeline, a staggering investment of Rs 600 crore is riding on Bollywood actor Salman Khan.
