Disappointed with the court's verdict in Salman Khan's 2002 hit-and-run case on Monday, Bihar's conjoined twins and 'Rakhi-sisters' of the Bollywood actor have given up eating food. 

"Both Saba and Farah refused to eat their lunch after their favourite actor was found guilty and sentenced to five years' imprisonment (by a Mumbai court)," IANS quoted Shakeel Ahmad, father of the 18-year-old conjoined twins, as saying.

"They are disappointed and shocked over the court's verdict against Salman Khan," Ahmad said, adding that they were praying for their "Salman Bhaiyya".

Three years ago, Salman Khan had helped the twins – residents of Samanpura in Patna – to fly to Mumbai to tie rakhi on his wrist. Since then, both Saba and Farah have developed a bond with the actor, who was convicted on 6 May.

A sessions court in Mumbai, announcing the verdict in the 13-year-old case, sentenced Salman Khan to five years in jail. However, the Bombay High Court gave him relief for two days by granting him interim bail.
