The Supreme Court has set aside Rajasthan High Court order keeping in suspension conviction of Salman Khan in the black buck case. Reports suggest that Apex Court has asked High Court to consider afresh Khan’s plea on the issue of staying the conviction.
An apex court bench headed by Justice S.J. Mukhopadhyay remanded the matter back to the high court for fresh consideration. Pronouncing the verdict, Justice Mukhopadhyay said the filmstar could tell the court that he would suffer irreversible damage if his conviction is not stayed and he is eventually acquitted.
The court said that the Rajasthan government at the same time could argue that no irreversible damage which cannot be undone would be caused if his conviction is not stayed.
The stay now means that Khan will no longer be able to travel abroad.
