The Bombay High court adjourned Salman Khan’s plea for 2002 Hit and Run case hearing to July 13.
Salman had appealed against his five-year sentence in the 2002 hit-and-run case to the Bombay high court.
Reportedly, Amit Desai, Salman Khan’s advocate seeked more time to verify the documents. He told the court that he received the papers last evening (Tuesday) and that he would need time to check the amendments, translations and whether they are duly certified.
Apparently, when Amit asked the court for three weeks time, Sandeep Shinde, the public prosecutor, said that the request was nothing but an attempt to kill time.
According to PTI reports, earlier, justice AM Thipsay had granted bail to the actor on May 8 and suspended the five-year jail sentence awarded to the actor in the 2002 hit-and-run case while admitting his appeal. Later in May, the HC allowed him to travel to Dubai to perform at an award ceremony.
In the month of May, a sessions court had held Salman Khan guilty of drink driving his car in 2002 and crashing into a bakery in Bandra. In this accident, among the people sleeping on pavements, one was killed and four others were injured. He was sentenced to five years imprisonment by the court.
Pending the actor’s appeal, the HC had suspended the jail term handed to him by the lower court. The court also expedited the hearing of the case based on the appeal.
