It seems Tuesday has come up little blissful for Salman Khan as the latest witness for the 2002 hit and run case claims that Salman did not seem to be under influence of alcohol on the night of accident.
The seventh witness, Francis Fernandez (63) happens to be a labourer and stayed near the accident site. During the trial, Francis said that he was standing near Salman after the accident but there was no smell of alcohol and the star was all in his senses.
"I was with Salman Khan for a few minutes after the accident. I didn't smell any alcohol on him when I was with him. He was able to walk normally. He was normal," stated Francis during Tuesday's trail of the hit and run case.
Francis also informed that he knew Salman since many years and Salman used to call him Commander. Francis said that Salman was in big trouble as the mob was very angry at that time. "I was sleeping at my house. I heard a big bang and I got up.
A few minutes later I heard voices shouting 'save me' save me' and then I ran towards the site. When I reached the spot, I saw that Salman was surrounded by a mob and many of them were holding iron rods in hand. When Salman saw me, came and hugged me requesting me to save him," claimed the 63 years old witness.
Francis further informed that he somehow controlled the mob and took Salman away from them. Later the labourer's wife got a vehicle and managed to depart Salman from the site.
Francis in his statement added that he saw Salman's car at the accident site but the police was yet to come then.
Meanwhile, it is expected that the hit and run trial will conclude by the end of July as at least three more witnesses are supposed to be presented.
