A Jodhpur court on Thursday found Salman Khan guilty under Section 9/51 of the Wildlife (Protection) Act in a blackbuck poaching case while acquitting all other actors accused - Saif Ali Khan, Tabu, Neelam and Sonali Bendre. The actor - seen emotional and hugging his two sisters after being pronounced guilty - has not yet been sentenced. Punishment of over three years would mean he cannot apply for bail immediately and will have to move High Court.Salman was sentenced to five years in jail and fined Rs 10,000.

Actor Salman and the other stars had been accused of poaching 2 blackbucks - an endangered animal - in Bhagoda ki Dhani in Kankani village near Jodhpur on October 2, 1998, during the shooting of the movie `Hum Saath Saath Hain`
