Being accused of mafia links is not new for Salman. As the star of tainted producer Bharat Shah’s Chori Chori Chupke Chupke, he was interrogated about possible underworld connections by the police two years ago. And like many others in tinseltown, he has been photographed with notorious gangsters in the past.

Under mounting public pressure, the police have finally been forced to charge the actor with the non-bailable "culpable homicide not amounting to murder". They have now placed him in custody in the crime branch cell, reserved for hardened criminals.
