After Salman Khan was acquitted from the much controversial 2002 hit and run case, the nation faced an uproar wherein while some were thrilled to see their idol walk free, some others were angry over the superstar treatment he had been receiving. In fact, recently, the actor’s case took a new turn after the Supreme Court agreed to take the case further after several petitions were filed by the Maharashtra government against the last verdict.
From what we hear, even one of the victims of the hit and run case has challenged the High Court verdict of the 2002 hit and run case and the Supreme Court on Tuesday has admitted the plea and has also stated that these matters need to be examined. It is also being said that the prosecution had requested to take the case to a fast track court but the Supreme Court suggested them to approach the Chief Justice of India for the same.
A few months ago, the Supreme Court had questioned the High Court verdict of acquitting Salman Khan from the 2002 hit and run case and even sent a notice on the same. Salman Khan was accused of drinking and driving during the 2002 case wherein he was alleged of killing one of the street residents at a pavement in suburban Mumbai.
