Khan killed the two blackbucks, a protected species, in the western state of Rajasthan while shooting a film, BBC reports. Born 27 December 1965 in Indore, India, Salman Khan is an Indian actor, producer, singer and TV star.

Samajwadi Party leader Abu Azmi came out in support of the actor Salman Khan.

However, the judge acquitted co-accused Saif Ali Khan, Sonali Bendre, Neelam Kothari and Tabu for lack of evidence. The meeting between two lasted for 20 minutes. while the next up were Salman's sisters, Alvira and Arpita. Earlier on Saturday, both prosecution and defense arguments were concluded, before the judge announced he would reserve the order till after lunch. But the blackbuck case - which trundled through India's slow-moving legal system throughout Khan's career highs and lows - continued to be a reminder of his past. He will not be provided with any extravagant furniture or air conditioner and will instead sleep on a rug spread on the floor under a fan and will get a blanket to cover himself. "The frequent reports of drunken misbehavior in public, indiscipline at work and girlfriend abuse, along with the hit-and-run and poaching cases that finally landed him in court, have contributed greatly to fan enthusiasm for him".

Khan was also found guilty of killing gazelles on the same trip and served very brief stints in jail in 2006 and 2007, but was later acquitted on appeal.

"If animal abusers now expect to get bail easily or to have their cases dragged out, they are in for a major surprise", the CEO remarked.
