The Jodhpur Court has ordered Salman Khan to deposit security bond of Rs.50,000. The district and sessions court heard arguments on the suspension of sentence and bail application earlier before complying the matter till today. Defense counsel Mahesh Bora in his argument said there were various ambiguities in the investigation. He argued that no investigation in any of the cases of black buck poaching proved that Salman used weapon.
Mr.Bora also claimed that eye witnesses in this case cannot be an authentic source. On the other hand, Salman Khan’s lawyer claims that he was warned several times through SMS and internet to not to attend the bail hearing but he refused to separate himself from the case.
