Bollywood superstar Salman Khan will stay at least one more night behind bars at Jodhpur Central Jail as a local court in Jodhpur will likely pronounce the judgement on his bail application on Wednesday. This development comes after District and Sessions Court Judge Ravindra Kumar Joshi on Friday adjourned Khan's bail hearing in a 1998 blackbuck poaching case to Saturday.
Actor Salman Khan, who was declared guilty of killing endangered blackbucks 20 years ago, is now in Jodhpur Central Jail as 'qaidi' (prisoner) No 106 - he was sentenced to five years in jail on Thursday.
"Salman Khan has been sentenced because he's a minority", the foreign minister said while speaking to Hamid Mir, anchor of Geo News programme 'Capital Talk'.
The court also ordered the actor to pay a fine of $154.

The Pacers' lead was still one with 6:32 left in the second quarter when in turned on the jets. The Pacers shot better than the high-scoring Warriors inside and outside the 3-point line.
Bollywood quickly rallied to Khan's defense.
The 52-year-old baby-faced leading man was found guilty of killing two blackbucks, a type of antelope found in the country, while working on a film in the northwestern Indian state of Rajasthan. Hope the court sees Salman Khan has helped and saved hundreds of people over the years.
Salman Khan was sentenced to five years in prison yesterday in a blackbuck poaching case from 1998.
The Rajasthan government had appealed against Salman's previous acquittals and two cases are pending in the SC since October 2016. Salman spent the night of April 5 in the jail and will also have to spend the next night there as his bail plea will be heard by the court on April 7. Other accused in the case - Tabu, Saif Ali Khan, Sonali Bendre, Neelam - were acquitted in the case after the court gave them benefit of doubt. Ahuja was on his way to becoming the next big thing in Bollywood with his brooding turn in films such as Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi and Gangster but his career went south when his domestic help accused him of rape in 2009.
