Salman Khan hit-and-run case: Judge transferred, hearing deferred!
Yogen Shah

Update (July 24): The Mumbai Sessions Court has deferred today’s hearing, as the Sessions Court Judge has been transferred

Actor Salman Khan was to be tried for culpable homicide today for his 2002 hit-and-run case. The latest update on Twitter is that the Mumbai Sessions Court has deferred the hearing, as – ironically – the Judge has been transferred. On July 19, the hearing was postponed and charges against the star were to be framed today.

The actor had appealed for a retrial after the Magistrate Court charged him with culpable homicide not amounting to murder. The court had rejected his plea at the last hearing on June 24. Salman’s lawyers have also reportedly filed an application in court requesting self-restraint in the media.

Earlier report (dated June 24): Salman Khan’s 2002 hit-and-run-case hearing is likely to be held today. The trial has been postponed several times this year because the actor failed to appear before the Sessions Court. On May 8, Judge UB Hejib fixed June 10, 2013 for the hearing and the actor was not required to be present in court. The latest update on Twitter is that the hearing has been postponed yet again, this time to June 24, due to the absence of court staff.

Salman’s Land Cruiser car had killed a sleeping pavement dweller and injured four others on September 28, 2002. The actor had 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).

Lawyer Ashok Mundargi had pleaded that the Magistrate Court’s order was “erroneous, bad in law and contrary to evidence on record”. He also said that the magistrate had failed to appreciate that the actor had neither the intention (to kill people) nor the knowledge that his rash and negligent driving would kill a person and cause injury to four others.

If held guilty, Salman might have to face a 10-year jail term for the offence.

    • Gayatri

      If he is a good and kind man, sunny, or the best man in the world, imran, then he should take responsibility for his actions. At the moment he sounds like a bully, who thinksd he is above the law. His history of abuse to women (at least one had the guts to speak out) does not make him a good man-even if he gives to charity.
      Shame on him!!

      • Anita Singh

        ok he is not kinded hearted. we accept it but whate happend that day that can happen to anyone. He is not only the one who did this.

        he already suffers frm last 10 yrs still u guys want to send him jail.

    • Saurabh

      Salman khan is a mafia, he should be punished at any cost. he is an actor and people like you raised him like a star…what kindness he has shown till date to the country.

      and how can u say that he is a kind man, he was badly drunked while driving the SUV and killed an innocent man.

  • bhrugu

  • sunny shah

    salman intention not to kill people sleeping on pavement.

    salman we r with u.

    salman has not rivalary with the people on pavement.

    • shanila

      if it was an accedent, he should have stopped his car and should have taken the responcibilities, not ran away from the scene. DUI and involve in an accident is a punis

    • shanila

      If it was an accident, he should not have run away from the scene. DUI and involve in an accident is a punishable crime.

    salman khan accident is by chance and the bad luck of peoples who dead in the accident so the court should Warren him in his case and he should pay the composition to the victims family

    • Ravindra Kumar

      Hi Guys,

      Why do we send people in jail to make them good person. But thing is that it was an accident not an intention to kill any person. and other is thing is that footpath or side walk near by High way or road is not for sleeping there could be accident by any common man also due to any X Y reason. instead of blaming him or sending him jail you should ask him for an amount by which people who has died in this unfortunate accident their dependents could survive well. Althouhg it is not legal but being human he can or he should do that. and whereever law and order is concern you can file a case on him for drink and drive. God bless you salman.

      Regards

  • jay singh

    Salman was not trying to kill anyone. sure it was his fault that he was drunk and hit the man sleeping on the pavement but it was certainly not intentional. now he is a good honest man. I do believe he should get punish but not that severely. I am sure Salman is regretting for what he did more ten years ago.

    Well I see many people want him to put in jail, without knowing the fact and that is ‘He was not driving the car’. Which is clear statement “Salman’s Land Cruiser car had killed” not him. So, nothing will happen a good human being will be set free of this sick case.
