Should Salman Khan be charged with strict offence? Court to decide today

Order on Salman Khan’s appeal in hit-and-run case expected today

Bollywood superstar Salman Khan must be holding his breath today. The Mumbai Sessions Court is expected to give its order on the actor’s appeal against a Magistrate Court’s order that held that the actor can be charged with culpable homicide not amounting to murder in the 2002 hit-and-run case.

The reason why Salman should be worried is that if he’s tried under the stringent charge, he could face imprisonment up to 10 years. Moreover, the offence can be tried by a sessions court.

The case dates back to September 28, 2002 when Salman Khan’s Land Cruiser, allegedly driven by him, ran over people sleeping on the pavement, killing one and injuring four. The actor was initially charged with causing death by negligence (Section 304A of IPC), that provides for a maximum punishment of two years in jail. However, the metropolitan magistrate, after examining 17 witnesses, had brought forth the more serious charge of culpable homicide against the 47-year-old actor and transferred the case to a sessions court for re-trial.

Defence lawyer Ashok Mundargi had contested the Magistrate court’s order, describing it as "erroneous, bad in law and contrary to evidence on record".

Sessions court Judge UB Hejib had fixed June 10 for deciding on Salman Khan’s appeal after arguments. The order, however, was postponed on June 10 to June 24.
