The special public prosecutor, Pradeep Gharat, told the trial court that the deposition of witnesses indicated that Salman Khan had run away after the accident.
Apparently, Salman Khan’s childhood friend and neighbour, Francis Fernandez, whom the actor fondly called as Commander, asked him to leave in a car driven by his wife, post the accident.
Francis Fernandez, who stays near the place where the mishap occurred, had come to the spot after hearing the commotion that followed the accident.
What’s ironical is the fact that Salman Khan did not even bother to take the injured to hospital.
However, in his statement, Salman Khan had denied that he ran away from the accident spot and had told the court that he had instructed his driver Ashok Singh, who was driving the car, to inform the police and take the injured to hospital.
The prosecution mentioned that some witnesses had testified in the court that there were only three persons in the car at the time of the mishap. They had said that first Salman got down from the right hand side of the car, followed by his police bodyguard Ravindra Patil and a singer friend Kamal Khan.
There is absolutely no reference to Salman Khan’s driver, Ashok Singh, who had told the court that he, and not Salman Khan, was driving the car.
The prosecution has also alleged he was drunk and was driving without a license, a charge that has been denied by the actor.
Salman Khan is accused of ramming his Land Cruiser SUV into a roadside bakery in suburban Bandra on September 28, 2002, killing one person and injuring four who were sleeping outside.
If Salman Khan wasn’t driving the car on the fateful night of September 28, 2002, why did he run away without helping the victims.
Also, had he not been guilty, what prevented him from staying back, calm down the people, and to tell them that right action was being taken against the driver.
Well, there are too many questions that still remain unanswered.
Looks like the special public prosecutor Pradeep Gharat is in no mood to let go the actor this time.
All eyes are now set of the final judgement.
Things are getting a bit tough for Salman Khan in the 2002 hit and run case as the prosecution is all set to prove his involvement in the same. Th...3.0
