Barrack for Salman Khan is ready

Ahead of the verdict, Jodhpur jail authorities have readied a barrack in case Salman Khan and the other film stars are found guilty.

However, jail authorities have  clarified that no special arrangements will be made for the actor in case he is found guilty.

Speaking to DH, Jodhpur Central Jail Superintendent Vikram Singh said, "We have cleaned a barrack inside the  central jail, in case the court declares them guilty on Thursday. There  are good toilet facilities. However, inside the barrack, there is no cooler  or AC - only a fan".  

When asked about the threat given to the actor by gangster Lawrence Bishnoi, Singh said, "We will provide him extra security inside the jail, in case  it is needed".
At present, the Jodhpur Central Jail  houses self-styled Godman Asaram Bapu and former MLA Mahipal Maderna.

The jail was in the news recently, after Shambulal Regar -  infamous for the murder he had video-recorded - posted videos from the jail premises online, which raised eyebrows on its security.

Cops on alert

Salman's arrival has put Jodhpur police on toes after Lawrence  Bishnoi,  a gangster, had told the media a few  weeks ago that his followers will kill Salman on his verdict day.

Amandeep Singh, DCP east, who was taking stock of the CJM rural court situated in the  high  court premises told DH, "Around 200 police personnel will be deployed outside the court and premises to protect Salman".

Police will be seizing two gates out of the four gates of the court.

Barricades have also been put up to control the fans who will try to get inside.  

Salman and the  other stars will be presented in the courtroom, which  measures 8 feet X 12 feet.

Situated inside the CJM rural court, a non-descript double storey building in the Rajasthan High Court premises, the room can accommodate a  maximum of 8-10 people. Moreover, there will be just a fan to comfort the star cast in the 40 degree Celsius temperature  of the city.

The police have also given strict instructions to the media to restrict themselves in a separate enclosure outside the court. "No  journalist will be allowed to enter the courtroom," DCP Amandeep said.
