[tps_footer]Salman Khan was acquitted of all the charges against him in the 2002 Hit and Run case and after 13 years of constant worries the actor finally walked free. Bollywood stars were all happy for the actor and surely his family must also be relieved now. All the charges against the actor were dropped by the HC due to lack of evidence provided by the prosecution that could actually prove that Salman Khan was drunk on the night of the accident when his car rammed into a family sleeping on the footpath, killing one and injuring four.
Here we have the photos of the same acquittal order passed by Mumbai High Court Judge A.R. Joshi who announced his statement that the actor cannot be convicted in the hit and run case, as the evidence does not prove he is guilty. The statement clearly reads that all charges against him have been dropped and the money paid by him previously in terms of bonds will be duly refunded. Other than that Salman Khan will have to pay a sum of Rs. 25,000 in the form of PR bond to the court.
After the verdict, Salman Khan took to the micro-blogging site Twitter to thank his friends, fans and family for their unconditional love and support throughout these rough times. The actor wrote, “I accept the decision of the judiciary with humility. I thank my family, friends & fans for their support & prayers .”

Salman Khan has had a stupendous year in 2015 with two of his films ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ and ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ become blockbuster films. Both the films together have crossed more than Rs. 900 crores worldwide which is a huge number for any Indian actor. Surely the verdict given by HC has become the perfect gift for Salman who will be celebrating his birthday on December 27. After being released from all charges levied against him in the hit and run case, the actor can now peacefully welcome the new year by leaving this horrifying past behind.[/tps_footer]
