The Supreme Court on Monday declined a petition seeking cancellation of bail of Bollywood star Salman Khan who was convicted and sentenced in the 2002 infamous hit and run case.
The apex court bench headed by Chief Justice HL Dattu declined the plea by one of the alleged victims associated with the case and belonging to Mumbai Police.
The Bajrangi Bhaijaan actor was granted bail the Bombay High Court on 6 May, the day he was convicted and sentenced by the session court. The petitioner had challenged the Bombay High Court order granting bail to the actor. One person was killed and four others injured when the actor’s SUV ran over them while they were sleeping on a pavement.
After more than 12 year on May 6, 2015, Salman was found guilty in the 28 September, 2002 hit and run case and sentenced to five years’ jail for various charges, including ‘culpable homicide not amounting to murder’.
