Salman Khan on 5th April 2018 was sentenced to 5 year's jail term after he was found guilty of killing two black bucks during the shoot of the movie Hum Saath Saath Hain in Rajasthan 20 years ago.

The legal battle came into limelight a few years ago when a sect from Rajasthan med Bishnois mounted pressure on the issue. Bishnois are Vishnu-worshippers and a ture loving sect whose origins can be traced back to the 15th century.

While Salman was convicted of the crime, his co-actors Soli Bendre, Neelam Kothari, Saif Ali Khan and Tabu were not found guilty. However, the Bishnoi Sabha has taken up a decision to appeal before the court against the acquittals of Salman's co-stars in this case.
