Salman Khan’s jail sentence: Reactions of varied shades trickle in post court’s verdict!

The Bollywood’s Dabang – Salman Khan is seen in his mellowed avatar after the Jodhpur court has convicted him for killing two blackbucks on October 2, 1998 in Kankani village in Jodhpur during the shooting of Hum Saath Saath Hain. He has been sentenced to five-years in jail with Rs 10000 fine. However, his lawyers have decided to appeal against the verdict in the Rajasthan High Court. In any case, the superstar has to spend Thursday night behind bar.

The judgment has shocked many, while others hailed it as the ‘victory of truth over falsehood’ and ‘ultimately justice delivered’. Reactions, some expressing elation while others watched the news with shock and disbelief, started pouring in after the judgement.

Many tweeteratti are surprised over his sentence as the six other co-accused,- Saif Ali Khan, Neelam, Sonali Bendre and Tabu,were let off by the court.

Reactions of varied shades started trickling in as soon as the news of the verdict hit the news-stall:

Chandrakant Ashok Mokal, actor and entrepreneur believes, “The case has been pending since over two decades. Why is this procrastination in delivering justice?”

Jayant Chavarkar, businessman, rues “justice is always delayed here which involves exorbitant money as court and lawyers’ fees including other expenses which are necessary to conduct court cases. For hoi polloi, it is next to impossible to bear such huge expenses.

Had this been with any commoner, there wouldn’t be such huge reaction and the case would be a low-key affair.”

Story-teller Subhash Ghai tweeted, “I am extremely shocked to hear @BeingSalmanKhan being convicted by session court but also having full trust in Indian judiciary which has many other doors to appeal for final justice whatsoever. Since, he is most loved person by industry N people for his human reasons too.”
