Bollywood actor John Abraham was convicted of rash and negligent driving by a Mumbai court and sentenced to 15 days’ simple imprisonment on October 14th. However, the actor obtained a bail immediately but had to pay a fine of Rs. 1,500, besides the required bail amount.
The sentence was in a 2006 case when the model turned actor had hit a bicycle with his Hayabusa superbike, injuring two men. However, John, who had himself hurt his ankle and knee in the accident, had taken both the injured cyclists to a nearby hospital before admitting himself. The court took cognizance of John’s “humane and kind” gesture in pronouncing the verdict. Since the court has stayed the sentence and granted the actor time for appeal, for the time being John can get on with life and the promotions of Jootha Hi Sahi.
Now, many a Bollywood actors, most notably Salman Khan and Sanjay Dutt, have been involved in many a legal hassles. But just like John baba here, we hope all of them come clean…
