The Bombay High Court adjourned the hearing on Salman Khan’s appeal till 20th july. The court deferred the July 1 hearing till July 13 but again adjourned it further.
An appeal has been filed by Bollywood superstar Salman Khan against the five-year sentence awarded to him in the hit-and-run case. Although the ‘paper book’ (compilation of evidence and documents) is ready and copies have been served to both the sides by the court), Salman’s counsel Amit Desai urged for three weeks’ adjournment to check whether the documents were in order. Justice A R Joshi, however, granted adjournment till July 13 to carry out the drill of checking documents.
Currently, the Bajrangi Bhaijaan actor’s lawyers are busy preparing the case papers for the hit-an-run case.
Earlier the Bombay High Court while admitting Salman’s appeal against his conviction posted the matter for June 15, then to July 1 and then to July 13 before adjourning it again to July 20.
On May 6, a Sessions Court had announced a 5-year sentence in the long impending 2002-hit-and-run case in which Khan was involved. Two days after this, the actor, however, was granted bail on May 8 by the Bombay High court and his sentence was five-year long sentence was suspended.
