Salman Khan’s driver face charges of perjury
Bollywood Salman Khan‘s Hit & Run Case verdict is out. A Mumbai sessions court has pronounced actor Salman Khan guilty in the 2002 hit-and-run case. The Bollywood superstar rammed his Land Cruiser into a Mumbai bakery in the early hours of September 28, 2002, killing 1 and injuring 4 who were asleep on the footpath.
Salman Khan in his statement to the court recently, had said that he was not drunk neither driving the car that fateful night. He said that it was his driver Ashok Singh, who was behind the wheel. Later the driver too accepted that he was behind the wheel. He said the accident took place due to tyre burst.
The judge has clearly not bought the defence claim that Salman Khan’s driver Ashok Singh was behind the wheel when the accident took place. Judge DW Deshpande tells Salman Khan that you were the one behind the wheel. It is not possible that your driver was behind the wheel.
Judge even called Ashok Singh a liar. Salman’s driver Ashok Singh may also face charges of perjury. The prosecution is likely to file charges against him for lying in court.
