Salman Khan was handed a five year’s prison sentence at a court in Jodphur on Thursday.
The case was based on a twenty year old poaching incident, which involved the famous Bollywood actor killing two blackbucks, a rare species on antelope, in Bhagoda ki Dhani in Kankani village near Jodhpur in 1998.
Khan, along with four other co-stars were charged, however only Khan was handed a prison sentence.
Khan will also pay the equivalent of approximately AED550 in fines.
Social media is already in shock following the ruling

He has suffered enough
Salman Khan had to visit Jodhpur for 20 years on regular basis for case hearings, He has suffered enough. Though Law is equal for all , but i feel Salman doesn’t deserve to go in Jail. Hope upper court will dismiss the lower court verdict . #BlackBuckPoachingCase

While others think the judgement is no big deal
Whats the big deal about @BeingSalmanKhan having to spend one – yes one – night in jail. Ever thought of the 1000s of undertrials who are languishing? Or those who dont have the money to pay bail bonds?
