Bollywood star Salman Khan has been placed under police arrest in India after a Rajasthan court upheld a prison sentence passed upon him for poaching.
Khan flew in from Mumbai after the court ruling
Khan had asked the court to overturn a five-year jail term, issued in 2006 for hunting a protected gazelle in 1998.
The actor was arrested when he arrived in Jodhpur, a day after the ruling.
He had flown in from his home in Mumbai (Bombay) - where he said that as a responsible citizen he intended to surrender - and was mobbed by fans.
Khan's lawyers have told reporters the actor will appeal against the sentence in a higher court.
Khan is one of Bollywood's top stars
Khan was sentenced by the same court in February last year to one year for killing two protected black buck antelopes during a separate hunting trip in 1998.
The poaching cases are not Salman Khan's only brush with the law.
He is also facing trial in Mumbai in a 2002 hit-and-run case.
One person was killed and three others injured when Khan allegedly drove into a group of homeless people sleeping on a pavement.
Khan faces 10 charges, including causing death by negligent driving which carries two years in prison. He has pleaded not guilty on all counts.
