Salman Khan arrested after being sentenced to five years in prison
Police on Thursday arrested Salman Khan after an Indian court handed down five years jail term to Bollywood superstar in a two-decades-old blackbuck poaching case.
His sisters broke into tears as the judge announced the verdict which acquitted other megastars of the Indian film industry.
Salman Khan along with Saif Ali Khan, Sonali Bendre, Tabu and Neelam Kothari and a local resident, Dushyant Singh was accused of killing two of the endangered species.
According to ANI, Salman Khan’s lawyers were praying for probation.
Final arguments of the case were completed in the trial court on March 28, after which chief judicial magistrate Dev Kumar Khatri had reserved the judgment for Thursday.
