The petitioner had challenged the Bombay High Court order granting bail to Salman.

Salman was granted bail by the Bombay High Court on the very day he was convicted and sentenced by the sessions court.

On May 6, Khan was found guilty in the September 28, 2002 hit and run case and sentenced to five years' jail for various charges, including 'culpable homicide not amounting to murder'.

One person was killed and four injured when the actor's car ran over them while they were sleeping on a pavement.
