In a dramatic twist in the ongoing retrial of Bollywood actor
Khan's hit-and-run case, his driver Ashok Singh has confessed
to being responsible for the accident, a lawyer said on Monday.
"The driver Ashok Singh has been put up by the defence. He has
told the court that he was driving the vehicle at the time of the
accident," public prosecutor Pradeep Gharat told.
Earlier, Salman Khan testified in the court and said that he was
not driving the car and only his driver was. He appeared in court
to testify in the hit-and-run-case, where the actor is accused of
running over people sleeping on the pavement.
The accident ended up killing one person and injuring four
others on September 28, 2002.
Salman Khan has been charged with culpable homicide not
amounting to murder. He has also said to the court that he had not
had alcohol on the day of accident.
