Earlier today, Khan’s bail plea hearing was concluded in the Jodhpur District and Sessions Court in front of Judge Ravindra Kumar Joshi, who reserved the order till post-lunch.

Khan’s team will now have to finish the paperwork.

The actor will have to furnish Rs 50000 as bail bond. He is expected to be out by 7 pm.

Security was beefed up outside the Jodhpur Central Jail, where Salman fans started celebrating.
