Bollywood's own bad boy, Salman Khan appeared before sessions court for his 2002 hit-and-run case. The trail is again post poned as the the witness didn't present himself before the court on last week.
Prosecution was about to examine first three witnesses today. Court now has postponed the trail to April 28. One of the witnesses was a laundry owner operating from suburban Bandra where the star had run over his car on people sleeping on the footpath. The other two witnesses in this case are panch witnesses.
On Decemeber 5 last year, the sessions court had ordered for a fresh trail as the the witnesses of this case had not been examined in the context of aggravated charge of culpable homicide which was charged against the star midway through the case proceedings.
The punishment on the charge of culpable homicide not amounting to murder can be a 10-year sentence. Salman, as the alleged accused in the case, was tried by a magistrate earlier for a lesser offence of causing death by negligence, which attracted only two years of imprisonment.
This case has been dragging around for almost a decade and when the charge of culpable homicide is taken into the case, it has got another terrific twist which can even affect the career of the actor.
