Mumbai: No matter what good he's trying to do these days, the ghost
of his past doesn't seem to leave him free at all. Yes, we're
talking about superstar Salman Khan and his 2002 'Caarnama'.
According to the media reports, a local court has apparently
rejected Salman's application seeking permission to sell a car
involved in the 2002 hit-and-run case that claimed a life.
In 2002, Khan ran his Land Cruiser over some pavement dwellers
in Mumbai, killing one and causing serious injuries to three
persons. A leading daily reported, early this year that Salman had
filed an application in the Bandra metropolitan court seeking to
sell his car as it was expensive to maintain and he did not need it
The daily reported, the court yesterday rejected the application
as the car is an evidence in the case and the trial is not yet
over. Reportedly, the actor was booked on the charge of culpable
homicide not amounting to murder. The application sought the
application of Section 304 II of the Indian Penal Code. Under this
section, the case will be tried in the sessions court and for which
the maximum punishment is 10 years. Well, we hope the court doesn't
throw the actor behind the bars.
