    "It is true that from the case paper it cannot be said that he was smelling of alcohol. I cannot say why the word alcohol was not in print on the case paper," the witness deposed. 

    During the chief examination by special public prosecutor, S P Gharat, the witness testified that he checked for the actor's alcohol history. "Khan told me that he had not been consuming alcohol. I conducted the alcohol breath examination. I noticed he was smelling of alcohol," the witness deposed.

    The witness further told the court, "It is a possibility that slight dilation if pupil (can occur) if the patient is not having sufficient sleep."

    The cross examination will continue on 27th January.
