Mumbai: Excellence and versatility are the two terms which can best describe the work and style of Salman Khan, prominent Bollywood actor, producer, television personality, singer and philanthropist. But the bollywood’s favourite Bajrangi Bhai is still in trouble.
A Mumbai court on Saturday cancelled the bailable warrant against Bollywood superstar Salman Khan in the 2002 hit-and-run case.
The court had last week stayed the bailable warrant in the 16-year-old hit-and-run case, in which the government’s appeal against Salman’s acquittal is still pending before the Supreme Court.
The bailable warrant was issued after the Race 3 actor failed to complete the procedure of providing surety (a guarantor for good behaviour) on the scheduled dates.
In December 2015, the Bombay High Court had acquitted Khan of all criminal charges for a lack of substantial evidence, seven months after the sessions court held him guilty.
The actor was accused of running his car over some persons sleeping on the pavement in suburban Bandra in 2002. One person had died in the mishap. The trial court sentenced him five years of imprisonment.
