Mumbai, Dec 10: The high profile hit-and-run case of Bollywood superstar Salman Khan has took a big twist. The Bombay High Court in its final leg of dictating the verdict acquitted khan of all the charges.
The judgment came as a breather for Khan as he was earlier sentenced to five years of imprisonment by the session court. The session court in its verdict held the popular actor guilty of culpable homicide not amounting murder.
However, the HC in a turnaround pronounced him as innocent. The actor after the verdict came out with a tweet at around 5 pm saying he accepts the verdict of the judiciary with humility. He took to micro-blogging site Twitter to thank his fans for keeping the prayers to realise the acquittal.
I accept the decision of the judiciary with humility. I thank my family, friends & fans for their support & prayers .— Salman Khan (@BeingSalmanKhan) December 10, 2015
