Today, a Mumbai session court is likely to give verdict on Salman Khan's infamous 2002 hit and run case. The court will decide whether or not the actor should be punished for culpable homicide not amounting to murder. If convicted for this charge Salman Khan will have to got to jail for ten years.
Earlier Salman Khan was only being tried for rash and negligent driving, which has a sentence of two years, according to law. But in January this year, the metropolitan magistrate, after examining 17 witnesses in the case, charged Salman Khan for culpable homicide.
In March, Salman Khan appealed against the magistrate's order and asked for a retrial in the case under the stringent charge of culpable homicide not amounting to murder. In the petition filed by the actor, it was mentioned that the magistrate's order is "bad in law" and "erroneous".
Salman Khan's SUV ran over a group of people sleeping on the pavement in 2002. In the accident, one person was killed and four others were injured badly.
