New Delhi (April 06, 2018): An Indian Court reserved its decision on Salman Khan’s bail plea till tomorrow.
The actor, who was yesterday convicted by the trial court and sentenced to five years in prison in a 1998 blackbuck poaching case, would now be spending another night in Jodhpur Central Jail.The district and sessions court here heard arguments on the suspension of sentence and bail application before deferring the matter till tomorrow.
In his arguments, defence counsel Mahesh Bora said there were various loopholes in the investigation. He argued that no investigation in any of the cases of poaching proved that Salman used firearms.“We have argued that the eyewitness in the case was not reliable,” Bora said.
On the other hand, Salman’s lawyer claims that he was warned through internet and SMS to not to attend the bail hearing but he refused to separate himself from the case despite warnings.
The actor is alleged to have shot and killed blackbucks in Kankani village near Jodhpur India on the night of October 1, 1998 during the shooting of the film “Hum Saath Saath Hain”.
