Poaching case: Court to hear Salman Khan's bail plea today

Salman Khan today spent a second consecutive day at the Jodhpur Central Jail but few of his Twitter happy colleagues ventured online to voice their support for the "Sultan" of Bollywood, arguably the industry's most saleable star. The judgment on the actor's bail plea hearing has been reserved till Saturday.

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.

This means Salman Khan will have to spend another day in jail.

Former Bigg Boss 8 contestant Pritam Singh, who was unhappy with the court's verdict, said that Salman Khan is paying the price for being a popular celebrity. Bollywood's "Bhai" was directly taken to Jodhpur Central Jail from the court where all arrangements for his arrival had been made.

The actor was also fined Rs. 10,000.

Legal counsel Anand Desai pointed out how Salman has been acquitted in other cases where the facts were the same as the 1998 poaching case. Food prepared at Taj Hotel was sought to be given to him but his bodyguard Shera was not permitted to bring it into the jail.

The case pertains to killing of two endangered blackbucks in Kankani village, near here, on October 1-2, 1998, when Mr Khan and other actors were shooting for Hindi film Hum Saath Saath Hain. Loveratri is also an in-house family production wherein Salman will launch his brother-in-law Aayush Sharma.

Khan is one of Bollywood's biggest stars who has starred in more than 100 films. Hope the court sees Salman Khan has helped and saved hundreds of people over the years.

Khan's fans thronged outside the courtroom hoping to catch a glimpse of the actor on his way in, and police ramped up security, Indian media reported.

In 2016, however, the Rajasthan government appealed the acquittal. Because if everything will goes into Salman's favour and his lawyers get convinced judge to show that there will some gaps into the last decision then Salman Khan may get bail from the Jodhpur Court.

As the Hindi cinema icon is jailed for five years for killing rare antelopes, here are some of the other major controversies that have enshrined Khan as Bollywood's bad boy.
