Salman Khan hit-and-run case: Charges to be framed on September 5

After the Mumbai Sessions Court deferred hearing on July 24, the Dabangg actor’s next date will be in the first week of September

Salman Khan was tried for culpable homicide on July 24 this year for his 2002 hit-and-run case. Ironically, the Mumbai Sessions Court deferred the hearing because the judge was unexpectedly transferred. The case will now be heard by a different judge, the court announced.

The Mental actor was present in court on July 24, 2013 to hear the charges framed against him, accompanied by his sisters Arpita and Alvira. The superstar appealed for a retrial after the Magistrate Court charged him with culpable homicide not amounting to murder. Salman’s lawyers have also reportedly filed an application in court requesting self-restraint by the media.

To recap, Salman’s Land Cruiser car caused the death of a sleeping pavement dweller and injured four others on September 28, 2002. The actor has challenged the earlier verdict of the Bandra Magistrate Court that charged him with culpable homicide not amounting to murder (Section 304 part II of the Indian Penal Code).

If held guilty, Salman might have to face a ten year jail term for the offence. Keep watching this space for more updates on the Salman Khan case.
