The Bombay High Court will start hearing Salman Khan’s plea against conviction in the 2002 hit-and-run case from July 30. On May 6, the superstar was convicted by a sessions court, and was awarded five years imprisonment on various grounds, including ‘culpable homicide not amounting to murder’.

The verdict came more than a decade after the Bollywood star had, in a case of drunken driving, mowed down people sleeping on a pavement outside a bakery in suburban Bandra on September 28, 2002. The accident had left one man dead and four others injured.

Meanwhile, the Supreme Court also dismissed a petition filed by the mother of a deceased Mumbai police constable, seeking transfer of the Salman Khan 2002 hit-and-run case from Mumbai to Delhi. The plea had also asked for the cancellation of the bail given to the actor.
