2002 Salman Khan Hit-And-Run Case: FRESH TRIAL BUT SAME OLD STORY As Witness Fails To Appear In Court

Bollywood Masala News

The trial in the 2002 hit-and-run case involving actor Salman Khan could not begin on Wednesday as the witnesses did not appear in the sessions court. The first three witnesses were slated to be examined on Wednsday by the prosecution. One of them is the owner of a laundry in suburban Bandra, where the actor had run over his vehicle on people sleeping on the footpath, while the other two are panch witnesses.

The new trial will require that witnesses and evidence be examined again.

The Bollywood superstar — who is accused of driving an SUV onto five sleeping men in 2002 — had to face a fresh trial after prosecutors succeeded in substituting the charge of ‘causing death by negligence’ with the graver ‘culpable homicide not amounting to murder’. The new charge attracts a maximum penalty of 10 years’ jail.
