Salman will sleep on floor in jail

Dhaka, Apr 5 (Just news): Used to super luxury hotels and a plush house in Mumbai, Bollywood super star Salman Khan will spend his time and sleep on the floor in a barrack in the high-security Jodhpur central jail where he has been lodged following his conviction and sentencing for poaching blackbucks.

Officials said Salman will be treated like any other prisoner and has to follow the jail manual. The actor will sleep on the floor and get a ceiling fan to beat the heat. The maximum temperature in Jodhpur on Thursday was about 40 degree Celsius.

Khan was sentenced to five years in jail by a local court in Jodhpur for the killing of two blackbucks, an endangered species of antelope, in Kankani village in October 1998.

“We have made special security arrangements in the jail for Salman Khan,” Superintendent of Jodhpur Central Jail Vikram Singh said.

Singh said the 52-year-old actor will be lodged in a barrack next to Asaram’s in the security ward and will not share it with anyone.
