After the verdict on Sanjay Dutt with reference to the 1993 Bombay Blasts, Bollywood will possibly have to digest another tumultuous shock. Salman Khan, who is accused of culpable homicide in the 2002 hit-and-run case has been summoned by the Sessions Court. The news of it came out yesterday. Salman Khan had challenged the magistrate’s order which equated the accident to murder, and could have decreed him to minimum 10 years’ of imprisonment.

Sessions Judge Swapna Joshi transferred the case to Justice U.B Hajib. The important papers and evidence of the case are in the process of moving and once completed Salman Khan will be given a notice and a hearing date from the Court.

Salman’s lawyer Ashok Mundargi appealed before the Magistrate on March 8th pleading his client not guilty of culpable homicide-murder, on grounds of a clear lack of intention and hence demanding a retrial in the much hyped case. The argument for Salman Khan clearly stated the Magistrate’s error in invoking the crime in light of ‘Culpable homicide not amounting to murder’ (as specifically stated in Section 304, Part 2 of the Indian Penal Code). The 2002 Salman Khan hit-and-run case is now being tried by the Sessions Court.

Salman Khan was previously tried in the same case for an offence of lesser magnitude which stated the charge as ‘Death by Negligence’ (IPC Section 304 A) which would have handed him imprisonment for 2 years.

Based on the facts let out by 17 witnesses, the Magistrate put the pieces of the incident together and concluded that the case of ‘culpable homicide not amounting to murder’ was apt in the case and redirected it for a retrial to the Sessions Court.

This 2002 Land Cruiser accident killed one and severely injured four pavement dwellers who were sleeping there. The accident occurred at dawn outside a popular bakery in Bandra, Mumbai on 28th September, 2002.

  1. This is in reply to Siddhan Falcon comment. If I live to be a million yrs old I wld never understand indian justice system which is so corrupt one cannot believe.
    Sanjay Dutt was sentenced served 18 mths now 20 yrs later he is being sentenced again. He premeditated holding guns he knew what he was doing in the case of Salman Khan it was a vehicular accident no matter which way one looks at it – no one can outside God can predict an accident even if one is drunk or sober so your comments stinks to the high heavens, I can guarantee you that one day you will be in a similar accident and be begging for mercy, it is quite obvious you are a man with a hatred heart and therefore cannot see the difference between something someone plans and one who does not. I pity you greatly.

    • Dear, Sarifa
      Salman did not pay heed to the advice of his police bodyguard Ravindra Patil who had requested the actor not to drive at a speed of 90 to 100 km per hour as there was a turning ahead or else the vehicle would meet with accident but he did not pay heed to his advice, Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate VS Patil snoted last week in his order, a copy of which was made available on Thursday. This is just a cropped part from an news article from Daily Bhaskar.
