Salman Khan, who was accused in the 1998 blackbuck poaching case at Kankani village in Jodhpur during the shooting of Hum Saath Saath Hain, has been granted bail by the Jodhpur court. The hearing for suspension of the sentence, which was earlier slated for Friday, was deferred to Saturday after the district and sessions judge Ravindra Kumar Joshi called for records pertaining to the trial court judgment.
The court had announced a five-year jail term under Section 51 of the Wildlife (Protection) Act. The Jodhpur court acquitted co-accused Saif Ali Khan, Sonali Bendre, Neelam and Tabu due to lack of strong evidence against them.
While fans were “praying” for the immediate release of their favourite Bollywood superstar, others were waiting for a just jugdement from the law makers. However, as bail was granted to the 50-year-old actor, Twitter started buzzing with witticims about how “Tiger is back!”
Here are some happy reactions from the fans.

And, here are some witty ones.
Bhai should write a book on how to get away with crimes in few easy steps:
1. Commit crime
2. Neutralise key witnesses
3. Get the judge transferred from the case
4. Get bail/ acquitted #SalmanBail #BlackBuckPaochingCase #JodhpurCourt #BhaiKaSwag #FaithinMoneyRestored
