It's been more than 13 years since the case of Salman Khan being accused of killing people on the streets has been in court expecting a verdict. The latest update on the case is that, today, the Bombay High Court has acquitted Salman Khan of all the criminal charges.
It was Justice A.R. Joshi, who, while pronouncing the justice, said that the 'prosecution has failed to prove charges against Khan on all counts'. As per the media reports, he asserted that the court has come to the conclusion that the prosecution has failed to bring material on record to establish beyond reasonable doubt that the appellant (Salman Khan) was driving and under the influence of alcohol, also, whether the accident occurred due to bursting (of tyre) prior to the incident or tyre burst after the incident."
Needless to say that Salman Khan, who was present in the court during the verdict, alongwith his sister Alvira Khan-Sharma and her husband Aayush Sharma, got emotional, after the verdict was delivered. He, then, was seen reciting the 'kalma' with tears of joy and relief rolling down from his eyes. Speaking about the verdict, Salman's lawyer Amit Desai mentioned that he did not take that as a personal victory and that his entire team had worked hard on this for six months now.
A visibly excited Aayush Sharma said that he was extremely happy to take my brother-in-law back home.
