Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, who spent the last two nights in Jodhpur Central Jail over the Blackbuck poaching case walked out of jail today. Judge Ravindra Kumar Joshi ordered his release on bail around 3 pm.

The actor has been told to file a personal bail bond for Rs. 50,000 and produce a Rs. 25,000 surety from two persons each who will guarantee that he will comply with all bail conditions. However, it is to be noted that he can’t leave the country without the court’s permission.

In the hearing today, the prosecution talked about the credibility of the witnesses and hinged the case on the postmortem report which said that the Blackbucks had gunshot wounds.

However, Salman’s lawyers argued that only the bones of the animals were sent for evaluation when their skins, as crucial, weren’t. They asked for bail on grounds that the witnesses against him weren’t reliable.

Meanwhile, Bishnoi Community is upset with the sessions court’s decision and has decided to move Rajasthan High Court.
