Jammu, Apr 7: The cousin brothers of Bollywood actor Salman Khan on Saturday expressed happiness after bail was granted to him in 1998 Blackbuck Poaching case.
Salman has ‘roots’ in Jammu as his mother Sheela Charak (Khan) (Saleem Khan’s first wife) belongs to Jammu.
Sheela Charak’s father, who was a dentist by profession was Jammu based and settled in Mumbai. He also married in Maharastrian family.
“We have blood relation with Salman and when he was jailed, we were really upset,” Salman’s cousin brothers Rashpal Singh and Shamsher Singh here said.
They both are from maternal side of Salman’s family.
“We prayed for him and it is also a happy moment that he has been bailed out,” said the relatives.
They also revealed that Sheela Charak (Khan) along with son Sohail Khan and daughter Alvira Khan also visited to Jammu when Salman’s maternal grandfather expired.
The family members said that they often visit to Salman’s residence especially on Ganesh Chaturthi to celebrate the moment with religious fervour.
“We tried to contact him (Salman) telephonically but might be busy,” they added.
