Bollywood Star'sSentence Upheld
A court in India has upheld the sentencing of Bollywood star Salman Khan in a case of poaching. Khan has asked the court to set aside a five year jail term, issued in April 2006 for hunting a protected gazelle on a trip to Rajasthan in 1998. Khan, one of Bollwood's top actors, was not present in the court in Rajasthan's Jodhpur city when the judge upheld the sentence. The court said that the actor should be sent to prison immediately.
