Hit-and-run: Sallu in court on Monday
Bollywood actor Salman Khan is all set to appear before a sessions court here in the 2002 hit-and-run case on March 25. He would return from the USA tonight and appear before the Court on Monday, sources close to the superstar said.
The case would come up for the first time before the sessions court after a Magistrate transferred the matter to that court by charging the actor with a more serious charge of “culpable homicide not amounting to murder”.
Along with the prosecution’s case against Salman, the court would also hear his appeal against the Magistrate’s order, invoking the charge of “culpable homicide not amounting to murder” against him which attracts a punishment upto ten years in prison.
Sessions Judge U B Hejib has scheduled the hearing for March 25, and the 47-year-old had been asked to be present, sources said.
