Bollywood actor Salman Khan, who was embroiled in 2002 hit-and-run case, have been sent summons by the additional chief metropolitan magistrate of the Mumbai court to appear in the court on 27 December, which is incidentally also his birthday.
In 2002, his SUV had run over five people, wherein one passed away and four succumbed to injuries.
When we met Salman Khan recently and asked him about his birthday plans, he said, “I have no birthday plans. But yes, a party will be thrown. Also, since I have been asked to appear in the court, I will be doing that as well. However, if my lawyer asks me not to go, I won’t."
Santosh Daundkar, a social worker, hit the headlines when he filed an application to the magistrate court in Mumbai stating that false evidence were used to shield Salman and delay the case by about four-five years.
Santosh has filed his application via his lawyer Abha Singh. He even stated that the case worked in the star’s favour as doctors who weren’t linked with the case appeared as witnesses for the actor.
The application stated, “The police could never be so naive so as to not know as to who were the actual doctors who had examined the injured persons in the matter.” It also states that “During the intervening period, the accused Salman Khan assimilated an enormous pecuniary benefit where he conducted his roaring business in films.”
