Salman Khan’s trial in the hit-and-run case has been adjourned until 8th April, according to a sessions court.
All witnesses and evidence will be examined again. Three of the witnesses were unavailable today for the trial. Times Of India reports that an injured victim is likely to depose in the next hearing.
In 2002, Khan was accused of driving an SUV onto five sleeping men. He was told that a fresh trial will be given after prosecutors succeeded in substituting the charge of ‘causing death by negligence’ with the graver ‘culpable homicide not amounting to murder’. The new charge attracts a maximum penalty of 10 years’ jail.
