Hit-and-Run Case: It's D-day! Here's why Bollywood actor Salman Khan is tense today
The high court on Tuesday, Dec 8 is expected to deliver its final verdict in connection with Salman Khan's appeal against the lower court's judgment.
The actor earlier in May 2015 had moved the high court urging it to dismiss 5-year jail term given by the lower court. The Bollywood superstar was sentenced to five year imprisonment by the lower court.
Now, the Bombay High Court, which has already started reading the verdict on Monday, will complete its judgment on Tuesday. Hence, Tuesday is considered as the D-day for the actor. The verdict will decide whether the actor would go to jail or not.
Salman, who was granted by the Bombay High Court, was accused of consuming liquor at 'Rain Bar and Restaurant' at Vile Parle before ramming his Toyota lexus car into a shop at suburban Bandra on Sept 28, 2002.
One person died in the mishap and four others were injured. The prosecution has argued that there were three persons in the car -- Salman, his singer friend Kamaal Khan and the actor's police bodyguard Ravindra Patil, who passed away during the trial in 2007.
However, defence claimed that it was not Salman but his driver Ashok Singh who was actually driving the car and urged the court to question Kamaal Khan.
However, the high court recently refused to summon Kamaal Khan to court for further questioning. If the judgment by the high court would go against the actor then he may go to jail today (Tuesday, Dec 8).
