Salman Khan Hit-And-Run Case Verdict On June 10

A Mumbai sessions court will provide its verdict on June 10 on the admissibility of an appeal submitted by Bollywood actor Salman Khan difficult a magistrate’s order invoking the charge of responsible homicide towards him in a 2002 hit-and-run case.

Sessions judge UB Hejib fixed June ten for deciding the appeal following arguments concluded on Wednesday. The 47-year-old actor was granted exemption from individual look on a plea by his counsel Ashok Mudargi that he was out of town on account of expert engagement.

Advancing his arguments against invoking the grave charge of ‘culpable homicide not amounting to murder’ (section 304 component II IPC), Mundargi pleaded the magistrate’s order was “erroneous, poor in law and contrary to proof on record.”

The magistrate, he contended, had failed to appreciate that the actor had neither the intention (to kill individuals) nor the understanding that his rash and irresponsible driving would kill an individual and trigger injury to 4 other people.

The offence below this section attracts a ten-year jail term and is triable by a sessions court.

Khan was earlier attempted by a magistrate below lesser charge of causing death by negligence (Section 304A of IPC), that offers to get a maximum punishment of two years in jail. Nevertheless, inside a twist towards the case, the metropolitan magistrate, following examining 17 witnesses, had brought forth the much more severe charge of culpable homicide against the actor and transferred it to a sessions court for re-trial.

Khan’s lawyer also filed written submissions around the appeal and produced oral arguments.
