Salman Khan hit-and-run case: Witnesses who identified the actor face threat!

Yesterday soon after witnesses identified the Dabangg star in the 2002 hit-and-run case, there was a sudden twist in the tale

Salman Khan’s worst nightmares must have come true yesterday when three of the witnesses did not just identify the star in the 2002 hit-and-run case, but also added that he had indeed exited his Toyota Land Cruiser from the driver’s seat. Now this was enough to get the gathered media and his fans who have been following the case all worked up. What followed was a shocker. Late in the evening reports were doing rounds about how one of the witness Muslim Sheikh was threatened and was even offered Rs 5 lakh to back out of this case. Sheikh in an affidavit submitted to the court confirmed that he was offered money to make a U-turn. That’s not it, this has brought under the scanner advocate Mukesh Pandey of the Mumbai High Court. The lawyer however said to a tabloid, “The police are playing games with me. I have not made any such calls. Also, I have no connections with Salman’s family. In fact, I had helped the cops trace the witness in the recent case. I gave an interview that all the witnesses are present in the court and the Bandra police is unwilling to trace them.”

Muslim Sheikh was one amongst the injured who was run over by the car when they were sleeping on a footpath near American Express Bakery and even worked there at the bakery. While the police has confirmed this episode, they have also clarified that Salman Khan‘s name has not come up in this matter so far. Senior inspector from Bandra police station said in a statement, “We have received an order from the court to investigate the matter. We will appoint an inspector-level officer in the case, who will properly look into the matter and submit a report in the next hearing. The court will decide if an FIR is to be lodged.”

As if witnesses deposing against the actor in the court wasn’t enough, Salman now also has to deal with other controversies surrounding his case. Not to forget Khan was earlier being tried for causing death by negligence, however a retrial was ordered in December last year and the actor is now being retried for culpable homicide not amounting to murder.
