Salman Khan's acquittal 'unfortunate', reality was something 'different': Shiv Sena

Mumbai: Upset over Salman Khan's acquittal in 2002 hit-and-run case, Shiv Sena has called the verdict 'unfortunate'.

"The verdict is unfortunate as the reality was something 'different'," Shiv Sena's spokesperson Arvind Bhosale said talking to ABP News.

"How will the poor get justice now," asked Arvind Bhosale.

The Bombay High Court on Thursday acquitted Bollywood star Salman Khan of all charges in the 2002 hit-and-run case in which he was convicted and sentenced to five years imprisonment by a sessions court.

While acquitting the 49-year-old actor in a jampacked courtroom, Justice A R Joshi said, "The appeal is allowed. The trial court's verdict is quashed and set aside. Salman is acquitted of all charges." 

On hearing the verdict, Salman broke down.
