Salman Khan's conviction in blackbuck case restored
Court has set aside the Rajasthan High Court's order that stayed the conviction of actor Salman Khan by a trial court in the blackbuck hunting case. A trial court had convicted and sentenced Khan to five years in jail in 2007 for killing endangered blackbuck. The actor had approached the high court for a stay on the order, pleading that he needed to travel to the UK for a film shoot. The high court had granted the stay. In its order, the apex court asked the high court to decide Khan's plea afresh. The court's order means that Khan won't be able to travel to the UK, since under British immigration rules, a person sentenced to more than four years in jail is not eligible for a visa.
