New Delhi, Jan 28: Bollywood superstar Salman Khan has filed a caveat in the Supreme Court urging it to grant him a hearing before passing any order on Maharashtra government’s appeal in the 2002 accident case. The Maharashtra government has already moved the apex court challenging Bombay High Court’s order acquitting Salman in the case, in which one person was killed and four others were injured. Salman’s plea was admitted in the apex court earlier this week.
Salman Khan was found guilty by the sessions court on May 6, 2015 and convicted for, among others, culpable homicide not amounting to murder, and sentenced to five years in jail. However, on December 10, 2015, the Bombay High Court acquitted him of all charges and quashed the lower court verdict. (IANS)
