Meanwhile, Rampal Bhawad, state president of Bishnoi Tiger Force, said that they are disappointed with the decision of court to grant bail to Salman and said they planned to challenge this in high court.

"The bail order must reach the jail authorities only after that will Salman Khan be released today".

If convicted, Asaram faces maximum sentence of 10 years, he said.

Hundreds of frenzied fans awaited the 52-year-old as his vehicle sped through the gates of Jodhpur Central Jail, where the action star had spent two nights after being sentenced on Thursday.

Salman's close buddies Mika Singh, Rohit Roy and Sonu Sood, filmmaker Subhash Ghai, actors Neil Nitin Mukesh, Rahul Dev and Aftab Shivdasani and playback singer Adnan Sami expressed happiness on Salman being granted bail by the Jodhpur sessions court in the case on Saturday afternoon.

In 2017, he was discharged of five similar offences except for the death of these animals he accidentally shot while filming India box-office movie, "Hum Saath Saath Hain" in 1998. Saif Ali Khan, Neelam, Sonali Bendre and Tabu, who were the co-accused in the case, were acquitted.

Khan says he did not shoot the two blackbuck deer.

Ahead of Salman Khan's bail hearing on Saturday, Sessions judge Ravindra Kumar Joshi was transferred overnight, along with 87 other district judges.

Bhai, as he is popularly known, was accompanied by his father Salim Khan, mother Sushila Charak, Shera, other family members, sister Alvira and Arpita and a nephew. He argued that no investigation in any of the cases of poaching proved that Salman used firearms.

Earlier in the day, the judge heard the arguments of the prosecution and the defence which lasted about an hour and pronounced the order around 3 pm, a defence counsel said.
