The conviction of the actor Salman Khan who is accused of shooting two blackbucks and three Chingaras has garnered a lot of sympathy from many celebrities in the industry. Salman was charged under Section 51 of the Wildlife (Protection) Act and others under Section 51 read with Section 149 (unlawful assembly) of the Indian Penal Code.

Khan was convicted in the 1998 black-buck poaching case. Khan has been asked to pay a fine of Rs 10,000 in the 19-year-old case as well.

Mr. Khan's lawyer Anand Desai said in a statement to the press that they "respect the decision" of the court.

He was also accused of assaulting a former Miss World and provoked a firestorm in 2016 by saying his workout schedule for a film left him feeling "like a raped woman". Neelam Kothari's husband Samir Soni spoke to the press and said while they welcomed the verdict, they were unhappy for Salman.
