Famous Indian Actor Jailed For Killing Antelope In 1998

An Indian court jailed Bollywood star Salman Khan for five years for poaching on Thursday ( April 5) , a lawyer said , in a verdict likely to derail the career of one of the country’ s most popular actor. 

Khan, 52, was found guilty of violating the country 's wildlife law for killing a blackbuck, an endangered species of antelope, in 1998.

 Four other Bollywood actors accused in the case were acquitted . Khan had pleaded innocent in the case that was brought by members of a community known as the Bishnoi , who revere antelopes. Khan' s lawyer could not be reached for comment and it was not immediately clear if the actor would seek bail. Earlier , Khan entered the court complex wearing a black shirt and sporting sunglasses . Security was tight.

Four other Bollywood actors accused in the case - Saif Ali Khan, Neelam, Tabu and Sonali Bendre - were acquitted, prosecution lawyer Mahipal Bishnoi said . The Bishnoi community considers killing animals unholy . They have pursued the case against Khan for almost two decades. Khan has had a history of run- ins with the law . In 2015, the Bombay High Court overturned his conviction in a hit - and-run case in which he was accused of running over a group of people sleeping on a city sidewalk , killing one and injuring four .

Last year, another court in Jodhpur acquitted Khan in a separate poaching case , ruling that there was no proof that Khan had killed an endangered gazelle . Khan has made a series of blockbuster hits in the last few years with the latest in December , Tiger Zinda Hai, grossing more 3 billion rupees ( $52 million) at the box office . His next film,Race 3 , is an action thriller scheduled for release later in the year .

Geecool, you know tradition varies around the world. Animals have spiritual connotation in many parts of India

So, they just knew that now after 20years. What I know is that many of these Whites love pulling down their Stars

Endy Edeson

@Isiaq; Imagine, a superstar like this will waste in prison because of eatable animal. Well, it's a call for even us here in Nigeria to know the laws of our country or host country and abide by it to avoid issues like this. @Isha. sure
