The Mumbai Court will be deciding over Salman Khan’s hit-and-run case today. Salman could be tried for culpable homicide not amounting to murder for the 2002 accident involving the actor. If it goes against Salman’s favour, he will be facing a 10-year jail term. .
The most eligible bachelor of Bollywood was earlier being tried for negligent and careless driving which carries a jail sentence of minimum two years but in January the court who was handling the case accepted that the cops provided evidence over the actor for culpable homicide.
Salman Khan had appealed against a lower court’s order for his retrial in March under the ‘stringent charge’ of culpable homicide not amounting to murder. Salman Khan mentioned the magistrate’s order as ‘bad in law’ and ‘erroneous’.
Salman Khan’s SUV ran over a group of people sleeping on the pavement outside a bakery in Bandra on September 28,2002 killing one person and injuring four others.
