The actor will, after all, be tried for culpable homicide not amounting to murder on his next hearing on August 19

The Mumbai Sessions Court today directed Salman Khan [UPDATE] to pay Rs 19 lakh to victims of his hit-and-run rash driving. The court’s ruling was earlier going to be deferred as the judge had reportedly been transferred.  The latest update on Twitter was, Salman will be tried for culpable homicide not amounting to murder.

The actor pleaded not guilty. He had earlier appealed for a retrial after the Magistrate Court charged him with the same.  The court had rejected his plea at the last hearing on June 24. Salman’s lawyers had also reportedly filed an application in the court requesting  for self-restraint in the media.

Salman’s hearing in this case has been postponed several times, and the next is slated to be on August 19.

      Justice must be served he must be jailed for 20 years, and this should be seen as a example to the rest of India. Killing a person is wrong regardless of his affluent position as a actor!!
