This PIL challenging the HC’s order has been filed by Yashwant Singh, a journalist. According to him, the actor has enjoyed the preferential treatment violating legal principles.

While suspending the actor’s sentence and giving him bail, the Bombay HC cited a previous decision of the Supreme Court. It said that the sessions court gave order of both conviction and sentence on the same day, which is against the judgement of the Supreme Court of India.

Salman’s appeal against his conviction is still pending in the High Court.

β€œHe has been on bail for a long time and his liberty was not curtailed. Normally, in such cases, the appeal is admitted and an accused is granted bail,” Justice Abhay Thipsay had said.
