Salman Khan’s sentence in jail of 5 years has been suspended by the Mumbai High Court pending appeal. The actor will not go to Jail for now and while his appeal against the lower court’s order is heard by the High Court, he will continue to be out on bail.
In 2002, Khan’s Toyota Land Cruiser ran over a group of men sleeping on the pavement in front of a bakery, killing a man and leaving four injured. On 6th May, Additional Sessions Judge DW Deshpande held Salman Khan guilty on all the prosecution’s seven charges, including culpable homicide not amounting to murder, rash and drunken driving and driving without a valid licence, that had sentenced him to five years in prison.
Salman Khan’s appeals are being argued in the High Court by senior lawyers Amit Desai and Shrikant Shivade. Today is the final working day of the High Court, before it begins annual summer vacations till June 8.
