Strong message of rule of law thru Salman's case. Judgements come one day, howsoever one may keep the wolf away. It returns..Law of nature..— Kiran Bedi (@thekiranbedi) May 6, 2015
Judgements are not based on whether a person is good or bad. If you've made a mistake, it's only fair you get the punishment. #SalmanVerdict— Sonali Dhulap (@pillya) May 6, 2015
Salman Khan’s defence lawyers had pleaded for three years of imprisonment and had asked the court to consider Salman’s charity work through Being Human, under which he sponsored heart surgeries of 600 children.
