Salman Khan Saif Ali Khan Sonali Bendre

LATEST: Bollywood star Salman Khan has been sentenced to five years in jail for killing rare antelope. The judge in Jodhpur in India's western Rajasthan state also fined Khan 25,000 rupees ($550/GBP300). An accomplice was jailed for a year. Khan maintained his innocence in court. The 40-year-old screen star was also sentenced to a year in prison in February (06) for killing two blackbucks in 1998, but he is appealing against the guilty verdict. Fellow stars Saif Ali Khan, TABU, NEELAM and Sonali Bendre were also accused of accompanying Khan during the alleged slaughter but were subsequently acquitted. Last week (ends07APR06), a court rejected his application to summon a key witness who allegedly retracted a previous statement claiming he had spotted Khan killing one of the black bucks.

LATEST: Bollywood star Salman Khan has been given a temporary reprieve from a one-year jail sentence for killing a protected antelope species during an illegal hunting trip in Rajasthan, India. Khan was found guilty last month (FEB06) of killing two blackbucks in 1998. However, on Friday (10MAR06) District Judge Yashpal Choudhary ordered the sentence to be put on hold to consider his appeal against the charge. Fellow stars Saif Ali Khan, TABU, NEELAM and Sonali Bendre were accused of accompanying Khan during the alleged slaughter but were subsequently acquitted. Khan's lawyer DIPESH MEHTA says, "We have based our appeal on various issues but we are primarily arguing that Mr Khan was not involved in the hunting and the evidence on which the chief magistrate has based his verdict does not prove that the alleged offence has been committed by Mr Khan." Khan's next hearing is scheduled for 12 April (06).
