Salman Khan hit-and-run case: Maha govt challenges HC verdict, files SLP in SC

Mumbai/New Delhi: After a breather, Salman Khan is in fresh trouble with the Maharashtra Government filing a special leave petition in Supreme Court today, challenging the Bombay High Court verdict that acquitted bollywood actor of all charges in the 2002 hit-and-run case.


The government, on December 23, 2015, had told High Court of its decision to file Special Leave Petition (SLP) in the Supreme Court to appeal against the acquittal of Salman by Justice AR Joshi, who totally reversed the trial court judgement that sentenced the actor to five years' imprisonment.


According to claims from the prosecution, on 28 September, 2002, Salman had rammed his car into a bakery in suburban Bandra, killing one person and injuring four others who were sleeping outside.
