Alongside Salman Khan’s 2002 hit and run case, the trial court on Monday has adjourned Salman’s under Arms Act case to August 19, 2015 for the further procedure. The Rajasthan High Court has stayed the trial in the lower court until a criminal miscellaneous petition is moved by the actor in the high court was not decided.
After back to back two subsequent rejections of the same plea by the ACJM court, the actor moved to the court again seeking permission to re-examine all the five prosecution witnesses including district magistrate Rajat Kumar Mishra and the investigating officer (ASP) Ashok Patni.
Salman Khan’ counsel H M Saraswat gave an application seeking reschedule of the trial granted by the High Court until the petition was not decided.
However, the argument that took place in the high court on Monday, July 20,2015 left incomplete. The court will now proceed with the arguments on July 28. Reportedly, looking into high courts next date, the trail court also deferred the hearing of the case till August 19.
Earlier this year on April 29, Salman Khan had pleaded to be innocent against the trail court where his statements were to be recorded.
Salman Khan was given a chance to present his evidences of his innocence on May 4. However, the trail could not start because of the revision of the petition before the session court, which was rejected on May 14. Another reason is the pending criminal miscellaneous petition before the high court.
Fresh charges in the poaching case were framed against him in March 2012. Then, in November 2013, the Rajasthan High Court ordered that Salman Khan‘s poaching conviction be suspended for visa purposes. The actor has been accused of hunting and killing the endangered deer while shooting his film Hum Saath Saath Hain in Rajasthan in 1998. His co-stars,Saif Ali Khan, Tabu, Sonali Bendre and Neelam, have been charged with inciting the actor to hunt.
