Salman Khan granted bail in Blackbuck poaching case
MUMBAI - Bollywood actor Salman Khan has been granted bail in the blackbuck poaching case, India media reported on Saturday.
Salman was ordered to pay a bond of INR50,000 and was granted bail after spending the last two nights at the Jodhpur central jail.
The 52-year-old actor applied for bail after a Jodhpur court on Thursday ruled him guilty under wildlife protection laws and ordered a five-year jail term.
India's most recognisable and bankable actor was found guilty of hunting two black bucks while working on the film Hum Saath Saath Hain in 1998. He has denied killing the black bucks.
