Salman Khan, who is sentenced to five years in prison for killing two blackbucks about 20 years ago, has been kept in ward no. 2, adjacent to the cell of self-styled godman Asaram, in Jodhpur Central Jail.
Jail superintendent Vikram Singh, while briefing the media on the celebrity inmate, said that the Bajrangi Bhaijaan actor would be treated as a normal prisoner and no special treatment would be given to him. He also revealed how he spent the night in jail and refused to eat the jail food.
What Was Served To Salman?
Salman Khan may be a heartthrob of millions, but at the Jodhpur Central Jail he is just Qaidi No. 106 who was served simple dal-roti but the actor refused to eat anything.
"Salman Khan was given normal jail diet like Dal chapatti and the morning meal will include simple khichdi," said the DIG Of Jodhpur Vikram Singh.
No Prisoner In Salman's Barrack
He also added saying, "Everyone has to sleep on floor and Salman Khan has been given four blankets for that. Right now there is no other prisoner in his barrack. "
No Special Demand By Salman Khan
"He was made to undergo a medical test and has no medical issues. He hasn't made any demands. We'll give him jail uniform tomorrow. Multiple-layer security has been put up for his ward," said Vikram Singh.
Salman Had A BP Issue When He Entered Jail
Vikram Singh also said that the actor had a blood pressure issue when he came inside the jail and the doctor of the prison dispensary checked him. His blood pressure was later declared normal.
Salman To Be Shifted In Other Ward
On the reported threat to Khan by a gangster, Singh said, "We are thinking of keeping him with some other prisoners from tomorrow so that he is not alone considering the threat to him."
Earlier, local gangster had reportedly said he would kill Khan in Jodhpur.
Meanwhile, Salman's Lawyer Is Surprised With The Verdict
Anand Desai, Salman's legal counsel, said although they respected the court's verdict, the decision "came as a surprise" as the actor had been acquitted in the previous cases which had the same facts as in this one.
