Fresh trial against Salman today

Mumbai, Dec 23 : A Mumbai court will on Monday begin a fresh trial against Bollywood actor Salman Khan in a 2002 hit-and-run case.


On Dec 5, a Mumbai sessions court ordered fresh trial in the case.

Hearing Khan's plea in the case, the court had ordered all evidences and witnesses be re-examined.

The court on July 24 framed new charges against Khan in case.

According to reports, Khan was to be tried for culpable homicide not amounting to murder.

Khan had pleaded not guilty to the charges. However, if proven guilty, the actor might had to spend 10 years in prison.

Khan was earlier facing the trial for rash and negligent driving, which awards the convict with a maximum sentence of two years.

However, the court handling his case, in January, accepted that the police provided evidence that merits trying the actor for culpable homicide not amounting to murder, which awards the convict a punishment upto ten years in prison.

The case was then transferred to the sessions court as the magistrates' court did not have the jurisdiction to hear the same.

In February, Khan challenged the order and filed a revision petition, pleading that the stringent charges against him be dropped.

In 2002, the actor driving a SUV had run into a bakery in suburban Bandra, and the accident took the life of one pavement dweller while injuring four persons sleeping on the pavement outside.
