Salman, the main accused in the case and who was driving the auto that night, was also fined Rs 10,000 by CJM Dev Kumar Khatri. Both of Salman's sisters were also present in the court.

The brawny actor, called Prisoner 106 in jail, reportedly skipped his no-frills prison meals but not his workout sessions, with the Times of India newspaper reporting that he spent three hours exercising Friday.

This is the actor's fourth stint in this prison. Against eight years later he was held guilty and sentenced to jail for five year term for hunting and killing the blackbucks.

District and Sessions Judge Ravindra Kumar Joshi allowed Khan's plea for bail and suspension of sentence so that he can file an appeal against his conviction and sentencing.

After his sentencing on Thursday, Salman was sent to barrack no. 2 of the Jodhpur central jail where he spent the night restlessly.

The third case is pertaining to the use of illegal arms for poaching. Every time, he was released on bail. The 52-year-old actor's lawyers will appeal the decision. He was also arrested back in October 1998 for poaching the blackbucks. "Sonali Bendre (Behl) and especially Tabu told Salman Khan that since you came so close, now shoot the blackbuck".

Convicted Salman Khan will have to furnish two bail bonds of Rs 25,000 each as a personal bail bond.

"He (Salman) should be given relief as he has done a lot of humanitarian work", says Jaya Bachchan.

The mother of the little girl is heard coaxing her but she totally refused to understand saying, "Other criminals are let off even after committing heinous crimes but Salman has been punished for five years for such a small thing". "We are hopeful the higher court will look at things properly and he will be out of this soon", he said. Later, Preity Zinta, who has acted with Salman Khan in several films, also paid him a visit.
