Salman Khan appears in court; charged with culpable homicide
Salman Khan appeared in a Mumbai sessions court on Wednesday morning and was charged with culpable homicide not amounting to murder in the 2002 hit-and-run case, in which one person had died and four were injured.

The 47-year-old superstar appeared in the court along with his sisters Alvira and Arpita. As the court framed charges, the actor was in a serious mood and heard the charges with rapt attention. He pleaded not guilty.

Apart from Section 304 (culpable homicide not amounting to murder) of the Indian Penal Code, Salman was also charged under sections 279 (for rash and negligent driving), and sections 337 and 338 (causing grievous hurt).

On the night of September 28, 2002, Salman Khan’s Landcruiser had run over people sleeping on the pavement outside a Bandra bakery, killing one, injuring four. It is alleged by the prosecution that Salman was driving the car in an inebriated state.

Salman was previously tried for a lesser charge of rash and negligent driving only. The charge carries an imprisonment of just two years. But earlier this year, a magistrate court ruled that the superstar can be tried for the stringent charge of culpable homicide not amounting to murder. Last month, a Mumbai court had quashed the actor’s appeal against the harsher charge.

If convicted Salman Khan could face imprisonment of up to 10 years.
