New Delhi: Actress Simi Garewal says that Salman Khan is "protecting someone for silly emotional reasons" in the blackbuck poaching case. A post from Simi Garewal's unverified Twitter handle read: "The charity, the generosity, etc of Salman Khan is irrelevant here. What is all-important is the fact that he did not pull the trigger. He did not commit the crime. He is protecting someone for silly emotional reasons. Even at a huge cost to himself." The tweet was posted after Salman Khan was sentenced to five years jail term by a Jodhpur court in connection with the poaching case. Salman was sent to jail on April 5 and he stayed there for two days. The actor walked out after his bail was posted on April 7 and the next hearing has been scheduled for May 7.

Salman Khan, 52, was held guilty by the court for hunting blackbuck while filming Hum Saath-Saath Hain in 1998. His co-stars Saif Ali Khan, Tabu and Sonali Bendre were acquitted by the court on the same day. Simi Garewal had also posted this:

Salman Khan returned to Mumbai hours after his bail was posted. The actor was welcomed by his fans outside the Galaxy Apartments. His colleagues - Katrina Kaif, Sonakshi Sinha, Sneha Ullal and Shatrughan Sinha among others - have been spotted coming in and out of Salman's home after his arrival.
