An Indian court on Saturday granted bail to Bollywood superstar Salman Khan.
The bail was granted Khan so that he can contest a five-year prison sentence for killing endangered wildlife nearly two decades ago.
Khan, one of the world’s highest-paid actors, was imprisoned on Thursday after a court found him guilty of killing rare antelopes known as blackbucks on a hunting trip while shooting a movie in 1998.
Mahesh Bora, a lawyer for Khan, told reporters a judge had signed a bail form. Media reports said the 52-year-old action movie star should leave Jodhpur Central Jail before the end of the day.
