Salman Khan records statement in Bandra hit-n-run case, wants media out
Salman Khan seems to be under tremendous pressure these days. While appearing in the court today in the infamous hit-and-run case of the year 2002, this tension was writ large on his face.
This is the reason that he went on to ask the court to not allow the media in the court during the hearing. But the court was not ready to oblige one of the biggest stars of the Indian cinema today.
Salman Khan has given dozens of super hit movies to his fans. There seems to be an insatiable demand for his films. Almost all his films that he has done in the last couple of years have gone on to earn more than Rs 200 crore at the box office.
But Salman Khan seemed to be miffed with the media as he moved an application to ban the media during the recording of his statement in a 2002 hit-and-run case in a sessions court here on Friday but it was rejected. Judge D. W. Deshpande rejected the plea but directed the media to report only after the recording of Salman’s entire statement is completed.
The judge tried to rein in the media when he directed the media to refrain from opinionating in the matter, or dwelling on merits and demerits of the case and to stick to plain reporting of the actual proceedings before the court. Earlier, Salman reached the Mumbai Sessions Court at 11 a.m. to record his statement on the sequence of events pertaining to the case, which left one dead and four injured after his rashly driven vehicle crashed into them.
The actor who is known as the bad boy of Indian cinema was ordered to personally appear before Deshpande to record his statement under Section 313 of the Criminal Procedure Code, considered a crucial stage in the retrial of the case before the final arguments begin. The development on Friday follows the conclusion of arguments by prosecutor Pradeep Gharat earlier this week. On Wednesday, Deshpande had rejected a plea by Salman’s lawyer Shrikant Shivade seeking adjournment of the statement’s recording by three weeks as the actor is also required to appear before a Jodhpur court in a case relating to possessing arms and shooting an endangered blackbuck.
The incident in almost thirteen years old. In the wee hours of September 28, 2002, Salman’s white Toyota Land Cruiser rammed into the American Express Bakery in suburban Bandra, close to his sea-front home in Galaxy Apartments, before fleeing from the accident site. One pavement dweller sleeping outside the bakery was killed and four others were injured, leading to Salman’s arrest by the Bandra Police later that morning. The actor is facing charges of IPC Sec. 304(II) – which attracts a 10-year jail sentence, Sec. 279, Sec. 337, Sec. 338, Sec. 427, and under Motor Vehicles Act, 1988 and Bombay Prohibition Act, 1949.
