Salman Khan was allowed by a court in Jodhpur, Rajasthan, April 17, to travel abroad for promotional events.
52-year-old Salman was awarded a five-year jail term on April 5 by a trial court for killing two black bucks in October 1998 and was granted bail on April 7 by the district and sessions court.
District and Sessions Judge Chandra Kumar Songara was hearing Salman’s plea seeking permission to travel to Nepal, the U.S. and Canada for some promotional events.
The judge granted permission on the condition that Salman informs the court of all details of his travel and stay abroad.
Salman was held guilty of killing two black bucks, an endangered animal included in the schedule-I of the Wildlife (Protection) Act-1972, during the shooting of the film “Hum Sath Sath Hain.”
His co-stars Saif Ali Khan, Tabu, Neelam and Sonali Bendre were also accused in the case but the trial court acquitted them by giving them the benefit of doubt.
