Salman Khan Sentenced To 5 Yrs Imprisonment by eeshfar(f): 2:42pm On May 07, 2015
Popular Bollywood star Salman Khan was
today sentenced to five years in prison for
killing a homeless man in a hit-and-run in
Mumbai in 2002. He hit 5 homeless people,
killing one and injuring 3 of them.
Prosecutors said he was drunk at the time
of the crash and had just left a bar.
His driver claimed in court last month that
he had been the one behind the wheels and
that the accident occurred after a tyre
burst but a judge in Mumbai court today
ruled that Salman was the one driving and
not his driver after someone in his security
team contradicted his driver’s claims.
Salman was sentenced him to five years in
prison and was immediately taken into
custody.
His family immediately went to a Mumbai
high court to seek bail. Salman’s lawyers
said they plan to appeal the sentence.
Meaning that the case will be in court for
years.
The prosecution is now set to move a
perjury application against Salman Khan’s
driver for giving false testimony in court.
Salman Khan had left the shooting of a
movie midway to attend the court hearing.
The movie will have to be put on hold since
he’s in custody. The 49year old actor who
has featured in over 80 Indian movies is
said to be worth about $40million.
