Salman Khan’s Black Buck case : Plea for Suspension of Sentence to be heard on July 17

The Jodhpur court set July 17 as the next date to hear Bollwood actor  Salman Khan’s application challenging the trial court order sentencing him to a five-year jail term in the 1998 black buck case.

Salman Khan arrived in the court on Sunday for hearing the application.He was accompanied by his sister Alvira, bodyguard Shera and some others.

Salman  Khan was found guilty on April 5 of having killed two black bucks during the shooting of his 1998 movie ‘Hum Saath Saath Hain’.He was later granted bail after spending two nights in Jodhpur Central jail.

The judge had asked the actor to appear before the court after a month on May 7 when it would hear his plea for suspension of sentence. He also directed Khan not to leave the country without the court’s permission.

The trial court had acquitted his Bollywood colleagues Saif Ali Khan, Tabu, Neelam and Sonali Bendre and a local, Dushyant Singh, giving them the “benefit of doubt” for the incident.
