Longer jail term for Salman?
July 31, 2006 16:59 IST
The Rajasthan government has sought to enhance the one-year prison sentence awarded to actor Salman Khan by a local court for poaching.
It has filed a petition in the Rajasthan High Court's main bench challenging the February 17 verdict of Chief Judicial Magistrate B K Jain sentencing Salman to a year in jail for killing a species of gazelle, in September 1998.
The court had also imposed a fine of Rs 5,000 on the 40-year old star while acquitting actor-comedian Satish Shah, Kuldeep Singh, Mohammed Hussain, Yashpal Singh, Mahendra Pal Singh, Dushyant Singh and M S Bhati.
