Mumbai, May 8: Fans of Salman Khan across the world are celebrating now as the Bombay High Court on Friday, May 8 suspended the actor's sentence. However, controversy is yet to die down as the Sessions Court's observations about Salman will continue to haunt him.
The Sessions Court, which found Salman guilty in the infamous 2002 hit-and-run case, on Wednesday, May 6 highlighted a few observations about the actor.
The court's observations will definitely create problem later for the actor as the High Court will take final decision in July 2015.
The judge of the High Court, however, was not convinced that there were grounds to depart from the norm in which bail is generally granted in sentences of less than seven years. The actor cannot travel abroad without permission.
Here are the 5 observations which will haunt the Bollywood superstar:
- The judge of the Sessions Court said that Ashok Singh, the driver of the Khans who claimed that he was driving the car on Sept 28, 2002 and not Salman, is a got up witness. Ashok Singh, according to the judge, has come to help Salman on the instruction of the actor's father, Salim Khan.
- Salman did not take any positive steps by visiting hospital to see the injured and provide medical aid to them and to come on the spot again with police.
- The judge claimed that if the actor believes that he did not commit accident, then he could have convinced people that action will be taken against the driver.
- The judge also said that Salman did not wait for police on the spot, but left the spot. Instead of visiting police station, Salman went to his house and till 10:30 am he hided (sic) himself.
- If really Salman did not commit any wrong, he could have visited the police station immediately and lodged the information about the incident.
