Indian court gives convicted Bollywood star Salman Khan permission to travel to Dubai where he is scheduled to appear at an awards show on May 29.

The Mumbai session's court found him guilty of “culpable homicide not amounting to murder.” Following his May 6 conviction, Khan was immediately given bail by the high court, with instructions to deposit his passport with authorities and seek permission for overseas travel. Khan's case is set for another hearing in July.
