The blackbuck is an endangered species protected under the Indian Wildlife Act.

Bollywood superstar Salman found guilty in 1998 blackbuck poaching case by Jodhpur court and he has been sent jail for 5 years. It is alleged that Khan and four other actors in the vehicle with him fled the scene when they were spotted. "Yesterday I got threatening SMSes and internet calls warning me not to appear for Salman Khan in bail hearing today", Salman's lawyer Mahesh Bora said.

"We argued for bail in the court".

Since the high-profile case was listed on top of the day's schedule, the court verdict came by around 11.25 am.

Others from the industry did sympathise with the 52-year-old star, but were cautious.

"Everyone knows that he is used to the lavish lifestyle, which is why he was unable to sleep", the Deccan Herald newspaper said, quoting an unnamed jail official. He will not be provided with any extravagant furniture or air conditioner and will instead sleep on a rug spread on the floor under a fan and will get a blanket to cover himself. "He hardly slept. At 6:00 am in the morning, the sound of siren woke him up".

Khan (pictured top) had been sentenced to prison terms of between one and five years in related cases before being acquitted by appeals courts for lack of evidence.

Khan has accused Rajasthan's forest department of trying to frame him.

Just before the hearing, Salman's counsel claimed that he received threatening messages.

The trial court acquitted his Bollywood colleagues Saif Ali Khan, Tabu, Neelam and Sonali Bendre and a local, Dushyant Singh, giving them the "benefit of doubt". The previous cases involved him in varied cases of poaching chinkaras and blackbucks. One clear example of the previous is the Bollywood star, #salman khan who has been involved in several cases with the justice, generating controversy in India.

Meanwhile, Bollywood is shuddering at the prospect of the actor spending five years in prison as the superstar has projects worth over Rs 600 crore under his belt.

According to DIG Vikram Singh, multiple-level security was deployed outside Salman Khan's ward at the night.
