Salman Khan's 2002 hit and run case verdict is out! The actor got convicted for the judge found him to be guilty, now it is only a matter of time before we find out his jail term.
The lawyers have been arguing in the court, talking about his Being Human charity and citing Alistair Pereira and BMW hit and run Nanda case for reduced sentence.
The actor has been charged the following India Penal codes.
- Sec 304 (Part II) of IPC - Culpable homicide not amounting to murder (Max 10 years in jail)
- Sec 279 of IPC - Rash and Negligent Driving (6 Months in jail)
- Sec 337 of IPC - Causing hurt by act endangering life (2 years in jail)
- Sec 338 of IPC - Causing grievous hurt (2 years in jail)
- Sec 427 of IPC -- Mischief causing danger to property (2 years in jail)
He can face maximum of 10 years of jail term. Salman's family left the court the moment he got convicted, with tears in their eyes, everybody including Salman were dejected with the verdict.
Somehow it feels nice. Indian judiciary is not great. But it is going in the right direction. #SalmanVerdict

#SalmanVerdict WOW, Salman had tears as ruling came!!! What about the tears in the eyes of those poor victims who suffered & suffering!!??
This case just proves that Indian judiciary can delay but can't deny facts. A little hope on the system restored. 👍 #SalmanVerdict

Now ppl will take law seriously and this judgement passes the ultimate message to those who think they can't be punished..!
I watched the detailed report of the case; all the drivers should know exactly what they're in for, despite 'being Salman' ! #SalmanVerdict
#SalmanVerdict Thats wrong...maybe thats a hit case but not a run case...Salman was forced to escape :(

Well to be fair to @BeingSalmanKhan, pavements are not meant for men to sleep. It is a known risk. But then, this is India. #SalmanVerdict
The awkward painful moment when you are a law student as well as a Salman fan. #SalmanVerdict
He might be gone for max of 10 years.

If he is guilty he should be punished rigorously to set an example tht no body is above law be it Salman khan or common man.

#SalmanVerdict has anyone else noticed that the victims and their families are completely missing the air time on Indian TV channels?
#SalmanKhan as Bhai has great emotional connect to millions. Glad that #SalmanVerdict alarms all of us to not make any attempt against law!
Sooner or later, Karma will get you. #SalmanVerdict
