Salman Khan faces ‘Hit & Run’ case verdict tomorrow
Bollywood superstar Salman Khan‘s Hit & Run Case is on it’s final leg now. The verdict for the infamous case that has been going on for almost 12 years will be out on Wednesday. The Dabangg Khan is being charged of drunkenly driving over sleeping homeless men, killing one and injuring four others. If found guilty Salman Khan faces up to 10 years in prison. After years of court hearings, a verdict is all set to be handed down on charges of culpable homicide by a judge in Mumbai on May 6th.
Public prosecutor Pradeep Gharat said, “I am 100 percent confident that I have done my job and duty to the best of my ability. We can only hope but cannot predict a conviction.”
Salman Khan in his statement to the court had pleaded not guilty. He said that he was not drunk nor driving the car. In fact it was his driver who was responsible. Salman Khan’s driver took the stand and said he crashed after the front left tyre burst, making steering and braking difficult.
Film critic B.B. Nagpal said, “If Salman Khan lands behind bars for a brief term, given his fan following it will be easy for him to rebound. But certainly 10 years will put a full stop on his career.”
So what fate awaits Salman Khan tomorrow, will he go in for a brief sentence or for ten years rigorous imprisonment?
