PETA condemns Salman Khan's bail in blackbuck poaching case

The court directed the superstar, who is known for acting in several Box Office hits in his career, to file a personal bail bond for Rs. 50,000 and produce a Rs. 25,000 surety from two persons each who will guarantee that he will comply with all bail conditions.

Salman Khan was granted bail on Saturday in the 1998 blackbuck case by District and Sessions Court Judge Ravindra Kumar Joshi. He can not leave India without court permission. The Bollywood actor was sentenced to five years imprisonment for killing two blackbucks in Kankani village, near Jodhpur - during the shooting of Hum Saath Saath Hain. Four other Bollywood actors accused in the case were acquitted.

Local news said Khan planned to appeal against the sentence.

But while his fans and producers of costly upcoming films may be relieved, Khan still faces a major courtroom drama.

Animal rights group PETA said it was disappointed with Khan's bail.
