Salman Khan returned home after getting a bail in the two-decade-old blackbuck poaching case. He had to pay a bail of Rs 50,000 after which he was allowed to leave for his home in Mumbai. But the actor is still not allowed to go outside India without the courts permission.
The blackbuck poaching incident happened in 1998. Salman allegedly shot down two blackbucks during the shooting of a family film called Hum Saath Saath Hain directed by Sooraj Barjatya. It was the Bishnoi people (a Rajasthani tribe with hundreds of years history of eco-diversity preservation) who caught Salman Khan and his entourage in the act that day 20 years ago.
They later filed an FIR that has been hounding Bhai ever since. And it was their insistence which finally put Salman behind bars, if only for a couple of days.
As Salman Khan left jail, the actor, not surprisingly, looked morose as he sat shotgun and wore the same black tee and cap which he had worn when entering the jail.
Upon reaching his Mumbai residence and seeing the crowd that had gathered, Salmans mood seemed to lift a little. His lips curled into a smile and he gave a cheerful wave to his fans.
