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 anymore.
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.
