Mumbai: Superstar Salman Khan has been in the bad books ever since the hit and run case in the year 2002. Though the case might be dilly-dallying for years, now it looks like the actor might soon accompany his friend Sanjay Dutt in the jail. According to the latest reports, a Mumbai sessions court will deliver its verdict on Salman Khan's appeal against a magistrate's order for his retrial in the 2002 hit-and-run case, under stringent charge of culpable homicide not amounting to murder today.
Reports further say that Sessions court judge UB Hejib will be deciding the appeal on June 10, after arguments concluded a month ago. On the fateful night of September 28, 2002, the actor was allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol and had ran his Toyota Land Cruiser on homeless people who were sleeping on the pavement.
Earlier the 47-year-old actor had managed to get 87 exemptions from appearing before the court in relation to the same hit-and-run case. He was also one of the accused in the infamous hunting of Chinkara, an endangered species in Rajasthan, while shooting for a film.
