Mumbai, March 30: In a dramatic twist in the retrial of Bollywood actor Salman Khan’s hit-and-run case, his driver Ashok Singh on Monday told a court that it was he who drove the killer vehicle, a lawyer said. Driver Ashok Singh said he was driving the vehicle when the accident took place, leaving a homeless man dead, public prosecutor Pradeep Gharat told the media here. Gharat pointed out that the only person who appeared to agree with Ashok Singh’s version was Salman. “I have not seen any complaint or any record about Ashok Singh (being the driver) and no other witnesses have spoken about him,” he added. The driver told Additiol Sessions Judge D.W. Deshpande that he was at the wheel when its tyre burst and he lost control, resulting in an accident that killed a pavement dweller. (IANS)
