Court to fix judgement date in Salman Khan hit & run case tomorrow

MUMBAI :  A local court today adjourned till tomorrow the hearing in the 2002 hit-and-run case involving Bollywood actor Salman Khan. After conclusion of the arguments on evidence by the defence advocate Shrikant Shivade, the court adjourned the case till tomorrow to fix the date of judgement in the case.
During the arguments, Mr Shivade tried to demolish all the charges levelled against his client Salman by twisting the argument, saying that a person who was killed in the incident was alive when actor’s sports utility vehicle rammed the bakery and was crushed to death while Salman’s vehicle was being lifted by a crane from the accident site. Special public prosecutor Pradeep Gharat had argued that at the time of incident, Salman was driving the vehicle without licence and was under influence of alcohol.
The prosecution has exminated 27 witnesses in this case, most of them have identified Khan and supported the prosecution.  On September 28, 2002, Salman rammed his SUV into a bakery near his residence in the western suburb of Bandra, in which one person was killed and four others were injured. Earlier, trial was conducted in metropolitan Magistrate court, but during mid-trial, court found that it was a case of culpable homicide, so it was transferred to sessions court for re-trial.
