Jodhpur: Actor Salman Khan may be a heartthrob of millions, but at the Jodhpur Central Jail he is just Qaidi (prisoner) number 106 who was served simple dal-roti which he did not eat.

Salman Khan, who was sentenced on Thursday to five years in prison for killing two blackbucks about 20 year ago, has been kept in ward no. 2, adjacent to the cell of self-styled 'godman' and rape accused Asaram Bapu.
