Earlier many witnesses had identified the actor saying he was present at the accident site. One witness had even claimed that he had seen the actor coming out of the car which had killed one and injured many on Sept 28, 2002.
However, one more witness told prosecutor Jagannath Kenjalkar that a big car was involved in the accident and that police had reached the spot along with him.
He further said the car had rammed into a laundry and its bumper had hit the shutter of the shop. The witness said he saw glass pieces, number plate of the car and bumper parts lying on the spot. These articles were seized by police and a panchnama was drawn by him.
Earlier Bombay High Court barred media to cover the hit and run case involving Salman Khan whose new movie Kick is going to be released on July 25. The Bollywood actor has filed a suit against the defendants and also moved a notice of motion seeking a restraint order against the channels from repeating the controversial programme.
Salman's lawyer Gaurav Joshi, argued that allegations would influence and prejudice the outcome of the case. He gave several instances of the "offending allegations" levelled in the programme against the plaintiff.
