A Jodhpur court on Friday rejected the bail plea of Bollywood star Salman Khan in a 1998 poaching
case, a verdict that would send the actor to jail.
Khan had filed an appeal against an earlier court ruling which had sentenced him to five years of "rigorous" imprisonment in connection with poaching of a chinkara, an endangered deer.
Khan was not present in the Jodhpur court when the verdict was announced. It was not immediately known when he would be taken into custody.
