On Thursday, the Bombay high court absolved the Bollywood actor Salman Khan of all criminal charges of Hit-and-Run case that in May, the actor had been held guilty by a trial court.
Little over 13 years after Salman’s late-night drive home turned disastrous for a laborer sleeping on the pavement
in Bandra. The prosecution had not well-established the case against him beyond an acceptable doubt as is required under the criminal law, Bombay high court consummated, as it resulted that there are many “unexplained
and anomalies” in the evidence.
The actor had filed an appeal in the High Court against the May 6 conviction by the Mumbai sessions court. And on that same day, the Bombay High Court granted him bail, and Salman, who’s out on bail, was called for the pronouncement to court. This Thursday, the actor who is currently busy in the shooting for the upcoming film “Sultan” appeared in the court before Justice A R Joshi who concluded and decided the judgment on the appeal.
His sister Alvira was in court too. The High Court had begun the judgment dictation on Monday, about 7 months after the guilty answer and harsh sentence had left the actor stunned. The case was one where a laborer died and also the other four people were badly injured when Salman’s four-wheeled Land Cruiser run into a laundry and bakery in September 28, 2002, in Bandra.
