In a further twist to the ongoing legal troubles for Salman Khan, the judge hearing his bail appeal at a Jodhpur Sessions Court, has been transferred in an annual shake-up.

Judge Joshi had begun hearing the case this morning and will be replaced by Chandra Kumar Songara, district and sessions judge Bhilwara, within a week’s time, according to NDTV.

On Friday, Judge Joshi had reserved the bail order by a day as he wanted to see the entire case record before deciding on the bail verdict.

Khan was convicted in the 1998 black-buck poaching case. He was sent to prison for five years on Thursday.
