With his bail plea hearing reserved till Saturday, the popular actor had reportedly spent a sleepless night and will have to spend another night in the Jodhpur Central Jail as Qaidi (prisoner) No. 106 in barrack number one. 

During the verdict yesterday, the judge stated, "The way the accused killed two innocent black bucks in violation of the wildlife laws...he is a film star, people emulate him... there has been a rise in poaching incidents, so leniency is not justified."
