But not everyone is unhappy about the verdict and there are people, which also includes fans, who feel that this verdict is just an example to send across a string message to the society that no one can ever be above law. The topic was trending under #SalmanVerdict under which was flooded with comments.
Really want to hear the victim's family right now. They've fought for 13 years against the power of the rich and the mighty. #SalmanVerdict— Deepti Sachdeva (@DeeptiSachdeva_) May 6, 2015
Salman Khan’s defence lawyers have pleaded for three years of imprisonment and asked the court to consider Salman’s charity work through Being Human, under which he sponsored heart surgeries of 600 children. However, the Mumbai Sessions Court didn’t pay any heed. Now, it seems that the 49-year-old actor will have to knock at the doors of the High Court.
