In the meantime, we can confirm that the lawyer has presented his argument in the Sessions court. The prosecution have also stated their case and with the defence asking for suspension of sentence along with a bail for Salman Khan, the Sessions court has deferred the verdict till tomorrow morning (April 7). The judge will read all the documents from the earlier case, hear the arguments again and then pronounce his 10.30 tomorrow and hence, Salman will have to stay at the Jodhpur jail for another night. For those of you who don’t know, reports suggest that the actor spent a restless night in the jail and according to the jailer, he was not given any kind of special treatment.
Also, a further report said that the Sultan actor has receuved death threats from local goons as well. This news was confirmed by the jail superintendent and was provided to the local news channels.
In an old interview, Salman was seen saying a lot about what really happened when they were on a drive near their shooting location. He had said, “One day after pack up, we were going back. There was Saif Ali Khan, Tabu, Neelam and Sonali. We saw deer fawn, stuck in a bush. The whole herd was there and I stopped the car. He (fawn) was petrified. I took him out of there, gave him some water. The whole pack was there. He ate a few biscuits and then went away. I think from there, the whole controversy came.”
