Blackbuck poaching case: Jodhpur court grants Salman Khan permission to travel abroad

Salman Khan filed a petition in the Jodhpur District and Sessions Court seeking permission to travel abroad to visit four countries including the US, Canada and Japan.

The Jodhpur District and Sessions Court on Tuesday granted Bollywood superstar Salman Khan the permission to travel outside the country after hearing his plea.

The actor, who was granted bail in a 1998 blackbuck poaching case, filed a petition in the court seeking permission to travel abroad to visit four countries including the US, Canada and Japan.

Salman will be travelling to the US, Canada, and Nepal from May 25 to July 10.

The 52-year-old actor was sentenced to five years in jail in the 20-year-old case by a Jodhpur court on April 5. He spent two nights in the Jodhpur Central Jail before being granted bail on April 7.

His Hum Saath Saath Hain co-stars Saif Ali Khan, Neelam, Tabu and Sonali Bendre, and Jodhpur resident Dushyant Singh - were all acquitted in the two-decade-old case due to lack of evidence.
