Breaking: Salman Khan gets bail in blackbuck case


Jodhpur: After spending two nights in the Jodhpur Central Jail, Bollywood star Salman Khan was on Saturday granted bail in the 1998 blackbuck poaching case in which he was proclaimed guilty. The court, however, has said that the actor would need its permission if he wants to travel abroad while out on bail.

Hundreds of fans gathered outside the court premises and celebrations erupted the minute news of the bail reached them. Crackers were burst and sweets were distributed although the Bishnoi community – which revers blackbucks – have vowed to keep up the pressure. Nonetheless, relief was not just for Salman and his fans but for family members as well. Sisters Alvira and Arpita have been camping in Jodhpur since Thursday and will now get to possibly take Salman back to Mumbai by Saturday evening.
