In 2002 hit-and-run case, bailable warrant cancelled against Salman Khan
In a major relief to superstar, the Mumbai sessions court has canceled bailable warrant against Salman Khan in connection with the 2002 hit-and-run case, on Saturday. The warrant was issued after the Bollywood superstar had failed to appear before the court to furnish surety as per the Supreme Court's directive. The government's appeal against Salman's acquittal in the 16-year-old-case is pending before the apex court.
Earlier this month, Salman Khan was sentenced to five-years jail term for killing two blackbucks in 1998. He spent two nights at the Jodhpur Central Jail before he was granted bail. On being free, Salman Khan resumed shooting for his upcoming movie 'Race 3'. Notably, in the hit-and-run case, Khan was acquitted of all charges by the Bombay HC due to lack of evidence.
