Salman was driving, Opposition reiterates


Mumbai: The prosecution in the 2002 Salman Khan hit and run case, reiterated its stand that the Bollywood actor, and not his driver Ashok Singh, was driving the vehicle at the time of running over sleeping pavement-dwellers, killing one man, in its written submissions in the ongoing final arguments.

Public prosecutor Pradeep Gharat said that Salman was the wheels of the Toyoto Land Crusider and not his driver Singh as subsequently claimed.

He also termed Singh “a dummy witness” who had lied under oath, in the written submissions of the final arguments which the prosecution conlcluded last week before Additional Sessions Judge D.W. Deshpande.
