No bail in sight for Salman Khan as his hearing is likely to get delayed due to judge's transfer


Salman Khan was to spend another night in a prison after a court on Friday decided to reserve its order on his bail plea until Saturday.

District and Sessions Court Judge Ravindra Kumar Joshi reserved the bail hearing in a 1998 blackbuck poaching case in which the Bollywood superstar was convicted on Thursday and was sentenced to five years imprisonment.

However, it seems that there are more problems in store for the Dabangg star.

The latest news on this front is that Salman's bail hearing may be further postponed as District  & Sessions Judge Ravindra Kumar Joshi has apparently been transferred.

More news on this is yet awaited but it seems that there is no temporary sigh of relief for the Khans over the next few days.

Salman Khan, Saif Ali Khan, Tabu, Sonali Bendre and Neelam allegedly went hunting on October 1-2 in 1998 outside a forest reserve near Kankani village in Jodhpur while shooting for Hum Saath Saath Hain in 1998.

While Salman was found guilty, the four co-stars and a local, Dushyant Singh, were acquitted.

Chief Judicial Magistrate Dev Kumar Khatri convicted Salman under Section 9/51 of the Wildlife Protection Act.
