Salman Khan signs autograph for kid of Jodhpur jail staff

Salman Khan will have to wait till Saturday to have the court hear his plea for bail, but he seems to have found some love in Jodhpur Central Prison as well. The Bollywood star signed an autograph for the kid of one of the staff members at the prison.

The star wrote, "Love, Salman Khan," reported DNA. 

Salman is spending his second night in the Jodhpur Central Prison as he awaits his bail hearing. He had been convicted in the blackbuck poaching case, and sentenced to five years in prison by a Jodhpur-based court. 

Since he was sentenced to jail for more than 3 years, the 53-year-old actor will have to appeal before the High Court for bail.

Salman has been placed in the VIP barrack of the Jodhpur jail, next to where rape convicted former godman Asaram is lodged. This is his fourth stint in the Jodhpur jail. He has spent a total of 18 days there - in 1998, 2006 and 2007 - all for cases of poaching.

The court had on Thursday found him guilty under Section 9 of the Wildlife (Protection) Act, which outlaws hunting any animal given protection by the law. The blackbucks that Salman shot and killed are given the highest protection that Indian law provides. 

The actor faced charges of killing two blackbucks in Kankani village near Jodhpur on the night of October 1, 1998. He had been shooting the film 'Hum Saath Saath Hain' when the crime happened. The court acquitted actors Saif Ali Khan, Tabu, Neelam and Sonali Bendre.
