Earlier this month, Salman Khan, who was convicted in the 20-year old blackbuck poaching case, walked out of the jail just two days after the five years imprisonment sentence. After being granted bail, Salman resumed shooting for his upcoming projects. Today, the Mumbai Sessions Court cancelled the bailable warrant against the actor in the 2002 hit-and-run case, reports ANI.
In April first week, the court had issued the bailable warrant against him, after he did not complete the procedure of providing surety (a guarantor for good behaviour) on the previous two dates, said Pradeep Gharat, special public prosecutor. However, after Salman's lawyer filed an application before the sessions court judge MG Deshpande, the bailable warrant was stayed as the lawyer said that the actor would complete the procedure. The government's appeal against his acquittal is pending before the Supreme Court. "Salman had to appear before the court here to furnish surety as per the direction of the Supreme Court which has admitted the government's appeal," special public prosecutor had said.

In December 2015, Salman was acquitted of all criminal charges by the Bombay High Court, due to lack of substantial evidence, seven months after the sessions court held him guilty. In the 2002 hit-and-run case, the actor was accused of running his car over people sleeping on the pavement in suburban Bandra, killing one.
