Court’s decision: “Bhai” has been allowed to leave the country

Released on bail on 7 April, Salman Khan who was accused of blackbucks poaching, had been authorised to leave the country. Jodpur district Court, presided by Chandra Kumar Songara granted permission to the actor to travel to the United States, Nepal and Canada, from 25 May to 10 July, forwarding the latter’s official demand.

The actor was sentenced in early April for 5 years imprisonment in the poaching of endangered animals which happened around two decades ago, in 1998. However, all other accused in the case were acquitted as there was no evidence to prove them guilty.

India’s “Bhai” was released on 7 April, after passing two days in jail as prisoner number 106. However, a condition of his bail is that the latter could not leave the country without the Court’s permission, said Judge Ravindra Kumar Joshi. The next hearing of the case had been scheduled on 7 May 2018.
