The 52 years old, Bollywood superstar Salman Khan spent 48 hours in jail after he was sentenced five-year imprisonment by the Jodhpur High Court for Blackbuck poaching. But on Saturday, the judgment was suspended by a higher court and granted him bail. The superstar has to submit a personal bail bond worth Rs. 50,000 and two sureties, each of Rs. 25000. The bail plea of Salman Khan was conducted in the morning in  Jodhpur District and Sessions Court. The judge, Ravindra Kumar Joshi decided to reserve the order till afternoon. Jodhpur Central Jail got the bail orders till 4:55 in the evening. He left the jail premises at 5:35 after completing all the legal formalities. He was immediately escorted by his bodyguards to a car that took him straight to the Airport. He then left for Mumbai in a chartered airplane.

Just to remind you the blackbuck case, it was during the shoot of ‘Hum Saath Saath Hain’, when Salman shot and killed two blackbucks in Kankani village in Jodhpur. Reportedly said, the actor, along with Saif Ali Khan, Tabu, and Sonali Bendre went for a ride at night. They were in a gypsy and Salman was driving it. He killed the two when they saw a herd of blackbucks in front of them. When the villagers saw and followed them, they left the blackbucks there and escaped. Then a case was registered against all the people related to the case. The actor was then freed by the High court stating that there are not sufficient proofs. But later, when the witness of these cases appeared, the Rajasthan Government appealed to the Supreme Court against the judgment of the High Court. The actors have few more cases registered against him and have spent a total of almost 18 days from 1998 to 2007.
