BlackBuck Poaching Case: Jodhpur Court likely to announce Salman Khan's bail order by 2 pm

The Jodhpur district and sessions court is likely to pronounce its verdict on a bail plea filed by Salman Khan on Saturday. The Jodhpur Sessions Court on Friday reserved its order on the bail plea of Salman Khan following his conviction in the 1998 blackbuck poaching case. The development means that the Bollywood superstar will have to spend at least one more night in Jodhpur Central Jail. The trial court on Thursday had convicted the actor and sentenced him to five years of imprisonment, while other accused actors were acquitted. The actor was arrested soon after the verdict and was sent to Jodhpur Central Jail. Salman's lawyer Anand Desai has stated that while they respect the court's decision, they will file an appeal against Khan's conviction
