After hearing arguments from both parties, the judge said the evidence in this case was strong and the decision can not be made in hasty and reserved the judgment on the bail petition.

Jodhpur: Bollywood superstar Salman Khan was sentenced to five years prison by an Indian court for killing endangered wildlife almost two decades ago.

His lawyer Hastimal Saraswat is ready with a 51-page bail application, where 54 grounds have been raised for the judge to consider and grant the convicted actor bail.

And there were others who supported Salman after he was sentenced to 5 years jail term. It is alleged that Khan and four other actors in the vehicle with him fled the scene when they were spotted.

Amazon, one of the biggest drivers of the 2017 market rally , tumbled 5%, wiping out more than $37 billion of its market value. Tesla dropped 5.3 percent after saying the vehicle in a fatal crash last week in California was operating on Autopilot mode.


The actor had previously spent 18 days in the same jail in 1998, 2006 and 2007. According to some reports, Preity Zinta was let inside the jail directly, whereas, if a common man comes to meet a prisoner, the person is asked to wait for hours.

In 1998, during the shooting of the film "Hum Saath Saath Hain.", Salam Khan along with other actors attacked a group of antelopes called blackbucks in a natural reserve, ignoring the wildlife laws of India.

Khan is one of Bollywood's highest-paid actors.

The court's judgment versus Khan, who's 32.5 million followers on Twitter and has been boosting his own picture a week, also sparked concerns between Bollywood merchants.

Slated for Eid release this year, "Race 3" is co-produced by Salman and Tips Industries Ltd, and stars Jacqueline Fernandez, Saqib Saleem, Bobby Deol, Daisy Shah and Anil Kapoor. As soon as the judgement was pronounced, other actors left the courtroom, while the police took Salman Khan into custody.

The blackbuck is an endangered species protected under the Indian Wildlife Act.

In 2016, however, the Rajasthan government appealed the acquittal. On Thursday, the Jodhpur court acquitted Saif, Neelam, Tabu and Sonali in the case while Salman was convicted in the same.

The order on Salman Khan's bail plea was reserved by a sessions court after the arguments in favour and against the bail were concluded on Friday.
