The prosecution case of 2002 hit and run case against actor Salman Khan is on the last leg. On Wednesday court declined a plea by actor Salman Khan to adjourn the trail for three weeks for recording his statement which is due to start on March 27.
Salman Khan’s statement would be recorded under section 313 of the Criminal Procedure Code and the session court judge D.W. Deshpande has ordered Salman Khan to remain present in the court Friday.
Salman Khan made a plea for adjourn the procedure for three weeks on the grounds that his presence is required in the Jodhpur court where he is accused of illegal possession and use of arms in poaching a blackbuck.
Prosecutor Pradeep Gharat opposed Salman Khan’s plea filed by his lawyer Srikant Shivade. He said that hit-and-run case should be given priority as it is conducted on day-by-day basis. Mumbai court fixed the dates before the Jodhpur court schedules were finalised.
Salman had liquor before his car met with accident in suburban Bandra on September 28, 2002, killing one person and injuring four.
The actor has denied that he was on the wheel during the accident in 2002. If convicted, he could spend up to 10 years in prison.
