Mumbai, April 8: Attempting to further il Salman Khan in the 2002 hit-and-run case, the prosecution on Wednesday cited evidence to prove that the Bollywood star was indeed under the influence of alcohol and his Toyota Land Cruiser vehicle did not have any mechanical defects. Public prosecutor Pradeep Gharat had on Tuesday forcefully argued that Salman and his friend Kamaal Khan had fled from the accident site without helping the victims on the night of September 28, 2002. Continuing his arguments on Wednesday, Gharat told Additiol Sessions Judge D.W. Deshpande that there was no tampering with the actor’s blood samples. He connected the evidence of four prosecution witnesses — medico Shashikant Pawar of Sir J.J. Hospital who took the blood sample, Bandra policemen Vijay Salunkhe who accompanied Salman to the hospital, and Sharad Gorade who carried the sample to the Forensics Science Laboratory and chemical alyst D. Balachander who alysed the blood sample. However, Gharat made a strong plea seeking re-examition of Keskar, who he said answered all questions during examition, but did not answer properly during cross-examition. (IANS)
