Salman Khan arrives at Jodhpur Rajasthan on Wednesday 04 April 2018

The math comes to precisely 5.

Salman was awarded a five-year sentence and fined Rs 10,000 for the crime.

Salman Khan's counsel said that the court has asked for the entire record of the case from trial court and after reading it, the court will decide on the bail of the Bollywood actor. Dressed in a pair of jeans and a navy blue shirt, Salman had arrived in Jodhpur from Mumbai in a chartered plane and had planned his return for the afternoon in the hopes of an acquittal.

A Jodhpur court on Thursday convicted Salman Khan in the blackbuck poaching case and sentenced him to five years in jail.

"We have appealed against his conviction and have also applied for bail". This is to notice that the whole incident took place in 1998 when Salman was shooting with Saif Ali Khan, Sonali Bendre, Tabu and others in Jodhpur for the film Hum Saath Saath Hain. Even the pellets recovered from him did not corroborate the story of the prosecution.

The actor had previously spent a total of 18 days in the jail in 1998, 2006 and 2007, all for cases of poaching.

Here are some tweets in favour of Salman Khan's bail.

The 20 year old blackbuck poaching case has finally come to end yesterday. While the actor is heading to the central jail, Twitterati are divided in opinion. The director too has rushed to Jodhpur, to be by his friend's side. He boarded a chartered plane to reach Jodhpur. He was also given a tablet to keep his BP under check, sources said. The big budget entertainer is scheduled to be shot in Spain, Poland, Portugal, Malta, Abu Dhabi, besides Punjab and Delhi. Also, filmmaker friend Sajid Nadiadwala cancelled the success bash of his film "Baaghi 2" after the superstar was sentenced. His bail request will be heard tomorrow. Gangster of Rajasthan Lawrence Bishnoi had earlier issued a death threat to Salman and said that the actor would be killed when he came to Jodhpur.
