Post Salman’s conviction,Desai said in a statement– â€œWe respect the decision of the Hon’ble Court. While we are studying the judgement, it just came as a surprise, as the entire investigation, and facts of this case were the same as those for which Salman has been acquitted by the Hon’ble High Court of Rajasthan in two cases, and even by the Hon’ble CJM in the Arms Act matter for the alleged offence on the very same night as is the subject matter of the present case,â€
â€œAlso, in the present case the hon’ble vourt has acquitted all the 5 co-accused which would imply that Salman was out hunting alone in the middle of the night in a remote area outside Jodhpur. We have preferred an appeal to the hon’ble sessions court and applied for an urgent hearing today,â€ he added.
A report coming in states that Joshi was scheduled to take the decision on the bail plea on Saturday, which means that Salman will spend another night in the jail.Â[Also see:Â Sajid Nadiadwala Heads To Jodhpur Post Salman Khan’s Verdict, Cancels ‘Baaghi 2’ Success Party]
