Bombay HC defers Salman Khan Hit-and-Run Case Hearing till July 20
The Bombay High Court yet again deferred the hearing in the Salman Khan 2002 hit-and-run case till July 20. The HC had earlier deferred the case till today on July 1. Salman has appealed against the five-year sentence awarded to him in the case. He is currently on bail after the HC stayed the execution of sentence on May 8.
One person was killed and four others were wounded when Salman’s Toyota Land Cruiser ran over them while they were asleep on a pavement in suburban Bandra on September 28, 2002. The Bombay HC’s decision came as a big relief to Salman, whose film, ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ will be released on July 17, 2015.
