According to sources, Nurullah Mehboob died when the drunk actor rammed his Land Cruiser into a bakery on Bandra's Hill Road on Sept 28, 2002. His car ran over the sleeping workers leaving four injured and one dead.
Salman was asked to pay Rs 19 lakh to relatives of the five victims. Mehboob's wife Farida Begum and 22-year-old son Feroz have been struggling to get their compensation of Rs 10 lakh since last ten years. However, sources informed that relatives of other victims have already collected their compensations.
The actor did not give any statement on the issue, however, sources close to him stated that Mehboob's wife and son have failed to prove their identities and thus they have not got their due payment yet.
Mehboob's son Feroz was quoted as saying, "I was just 12 when my father passed away. We did hire a lawyer who didn't help us get the money we were entitled to. The only identity proof my mother had was a ration card which the lawyer took and did not return to us."
"I am hopeful that I will finally get the money. I will buy myself a house. My mother has her own family now. I will not split the money with her but I will definitely take care of her and help her when needed," added Feroz.
