Salman khan granted bail after spending two nights behind bars
Karachi (Web Desk) : Bollywood actor Salman Khan was released from jail on Saturday after he was granted bail in the blackbuck poaching case.
Judge Ravindra Kumar Joshi, who began hearing his bail request this morning, has ordered his release on bail.
In court today, Salman Khan’s lawyers were asked to file a bail bond for INR50,000 and produce a INR25,000 surety from two persons each to guarantee that the actor will comply with all bail conditions.
The bail documents were be sent to Jodhpur Central Jail around 5 pm and he was released in the next 30 minutes. But he can’t leave the country without the court’s permission.
Meanwhile, Judge Joshi, who was scheduled to hear the actor’s bail plea in the blackbuck poaching case, has been transferred by the Rajasthan High Court, along with 87 other district judges.
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.
His co-actors Saif Ali Khan, Tabu, Neelam Kothari and Sonal Bendre, who were in the SUV that the Dabangg star was driving during their alleged late night hunting outing, were, however, acquitted by the Jodhpur sessions court.
