#WeLoveYouSalmanKhan trending on Twitter as Salman convicted by court. A session court in Mumbai, convicted the actor in 2002’s hit-and-run case.
Bollywood superstar Salman Khan is to be given verdict in the infamous 2002 hit-and-run case. It was a very long and torturous legal battle not just for the actor, but also the people who suffered from that accident that took place some thirteen years ago.
One of the most successful Bollywood actors, Salman was reportedly shooting in Kashmir, where where he took a flight to Mumbai last evening. Reports suggest that the actor has already reached the court premises where the verdict in the case will be delivered. It will be decided today if he is guilty of killing one person and injuring as many as four people who his SUV hit the pavement in Mumbai late in night.
But it is not just he who may be impacted by the verdict if it goes against him. He is working on several films and more than Rs 200 crore is riding on him at the moment. The prosecution has alleged that it has strong evidence that Salman Khan was drunk and driving back home from Juhu late on September 28, 2002, when he lost control of the car and ran over men sleeping on the pavement outside a bakery. The prosecution claims that Salman Khan fled the scene.
But Salmanâ€™s lawyers have opposed prosecutionâ€™s arguments claiming that actorâ€™s driver Ashok Singh was driving the car. Salman Khan told the court that a “false case” has been filed against him. “I was not drunk…I was not driving, driver Ashok Singh was at the wheel…I was at the spot for 15 minutes after the accident,” he said.
Salmanâ€™s driver who came forward to his employerâ€™s defense has denied that the actor was driving the vehicle. Driver Ashok Singh, who is the only defence witness in the case, said in court, â€œI was driving when the accident took place…the tyre burst and brake jammed. I narrated the incident to police but was made to wait at the police station. I suspected foul play and informed Salman about it.â€
