Jodhpur Central Jail's visiting hours on Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday are from 4 pm to 6 pm.

None of the actors, who flew down to Jodhpur for the hearing, have commented on Salman's conviction till now. "Yesterday I got threatening SMSes and internet calls warning me not to appear for Salman Khan in bail hearing today", Salman's lawyer Mahesh Bora said.

Jodhpur jail officials said Salman had not eaten anything post the verdict and even refused to have tea.

He will have a simple wooden bed, a rug and a cooler in his cell, Singh told journalists on Thursday.

While Salman was found guilty, the four co-stars and a local, Dushyant Singh, were acquitted.

The other accused in the case, actors Saif Ali Khan, Sonali Bendre, Tabu and Neelam Kothari, were acquitted on the same day. Judge Khatri had on Thursday said that Salman was a "habitual offender" hence he had been convicted, while the others were given the benefit of the doubt. This is what he said, "Khan was sentenced because he is a minority". "The frequent reports of drunken misbehavior in public, indiscipline at work and girlfriend abuse, along with the hit-and-run and poaching cases that finally landed him in court, have contributed greatly to fan enthusiasm for him".

Brazil judge orders ex-president Lula jailed by Friday
A defiant Workers Party, founded by Lula, said its supporters would take to the streets to defend his right to run. The Supreme Court today denied Lula's request to remain free while exhausting the appeal process.

In 1998, Khan spent a week in prison after being accused of using unlicensed arms to shoot the black bucks. Back in 2015, he had brushed the case of hit and run drive in which he had killed a homeless man.

A member of the Bishnoi community claimed to have seen the Bollywood actor shoot the antelope, however, Khan argued that the antelope died of natural causes.

The Rajasthan government has challenged his acquittal in the Chinkara deer case in the Supreme Court. He was also accused of abuse by ex-girlfriend, Aishwarya Rai, a leading Bollywood actress.

The Bollywood heartthrob's latest blockbuster "Tiger Zinda Hai" (Tiger is alive) collected some $85 million worldwide.

In 2013, the Supreme Court upheld the ruling but reduced the sentence to five years, following which he was jailed in Pune and went on to serve the rest of his sentence.
