John Abraham, who was found guilty for rash driving and sentenced to 15 days of imprisonment, can finally breathe a sigh of relief as he won't be going to jail. On Monday, the Bombay High court altered John's 15-day prison term and ordered that the actor be released on probation.
The court refused to overturn judgments delivered by two lower courts that held the actor guilty as it is the responsibility of the driver to see to it that the vehicle is under his control at all times so as to avoid such sudden accidents
In 2006, John injured two pedestrians Tanmay Majhi and Shyam Kasbe, while riding his motorcycle in Mumbai's Khar Danda area. The Khar police booked John under sections 279 and 337 of the IPC for rash and negligent driving. John Abraham had rushed the victims to the hospital and has attended all his court hearings.
