Defence relies on driver’s statement; prosecution has testimony of 27 witnesses

Bollywood superstar Salman Khan was today convicted by a Mumbai sessions court of culpable homicide not amounting to murder in the 2002 hit and run case with all charges proved against him and can face upto 10 years in jail.

The judgement in the over 12-year-old case, whose trial saw many twists and turns, was delivered by Judge D W Deshpande where the 49-year-old actor and his family were present.

Significantly, the court held that Salman was driving under the influence of alcohol and also did not have a driving license.

The court relied upon judgements in Alistair Pereira and Nikhil Nanda BMW case of Delhi while convicting Salman.

It also asked what he had to say on the verdict to which he denied charges saying he was not driving the car at the time of mishap.
