Claiming that the celebrity status of his son Salman Khan was responsible for the "harsh" judgement against him, Salim Khan on Tuesday said he was sure that "justice" would be meted out to the Bollywood actor.

"I am one hundred and ten per cent sure that justice would be meted out to him", he told reporters in Mumbai.

He blamed Salman's celebrity status for the "harsh judgement" of the court and expressed confidence that his son would be granted bail.

Salman Khan was sentenced to five years rigorous imprisonment in the black buck poaching case.
