Salman Khan Found Guilty In Blackbuck Poaching Case, Other Actors Acquitted

Salman Khan has been sentenced to five years in prison in the blackbuck poaching case. Four other Bollywood stars, Saif Ali Khan, Sonali Bendre, Tabu and Neelam Kothari, were acquitted for lack of evidence in the case. Inspite of the court finding him guilty, Salman Khan has maintained that he is innocent. While delivering the verdict yesterday, the judge said, "The way the accused (Salman Khan) killed two innocent black bucks in violation of the wildlife laws...he is a film star, people emulate him... there has been a rise in poaching incidents, so leniency is not justified." Salman Khan's lawyer said his bail papers have been prepared and the hearing will take place this morning in the Jodhpur sessions court.
