The Dabangg Khan's hit and run case has taken a new track now and it seems the Kick actor will be not be able to breath a sigh of relief now...
Salman Khan who has been charged of culpable homicide for his 2002 hit and run case smelled of alcohol but was not under its influence, claimed the doctor who had examined the chemical analysis report of Khan's blood samples. The doctor made the statement at the sessions court on Thursday.
Salman's blood sample was collected after almost 10 hours of the accident, in which the actor is accused. Although the defence claimed that the word 'alcohol' was fabricated in the medical papers used for the case. The doctor claimed that while Salman was being examined, his speech was coherent and his movements were normal.
Advocate Shrikant Shivade, in defence of Salman also stated that the medical register had gone missing before resurfacing only years later. The doctor who was on duty in the accident section of J J Hospital's casualty ward also informed that Salman was brought almost 10 hours after the accident - somewhere between 2 pm and 6 pm by the Bandra police.
The doctor also stated that Salman's pupils were dilated although he denied consuming alcohol. To the statement, the defence also claimed that not just alcohol intake, but there can be multiple reasons for pupil dilation including incomplete sleep.
Shivade claimed that Salman's consent was not taken before the blood tests but the doctor refuted the claims, saying that he has taken Salman's verbal consent before his blood samples were taken.
The court will now have the next hearing on January 27.
