New Delhi: The trial for Salman Khan's hearing in the infamous 2002 hit-and-run case has been adjourned by the court till November 24. The actor failed to appear for the trial.
In the hit-and run-case, one person was killed and four others were injured when Salman’s Land Cruiser, allegedly driven by him, crushed a group of people sleeping on the pavement outside a bakery in suburban Bandra in the wee hours of September 28, 2002.
Last month, the witness confirmed in his statement to the court that Salman was on the driving seat, while leaving the hotel premises on that ill-fated night.
On June 23, 2014, during the retrial of the infamous case, a manager of liquor bar in Juhu had identified Salman, saying the actor had come to the restaurant with friends hours before his car was involved in an accident in 2002, but said he was not sure whether the Bollywood actor had taken drinks himself or not.
Witnesses were expected to testify in the Mumbai court regarding the identification of the 48 year-old actor.
If Salman is convicted then he may even face a punishment of 10 years in prison.
