The re-trial of Salman Khan�۪s hit-and-run case was due today but BizAsia has learnt that it has now been deferred until the end of April.
The sessions court is believed to have made the decision to defer the case due to police deployment on election duty. Rajendra Kane, Investigating Officer, told the court that the police were currently on election duty so were unable to give time to the case.
Khan allegedly ran over people who were sleeping on the road in an incident which took place 12 years ago. The prosecution is said to have produced 64 witnesses but only a handful would be examined in court. One person was killed in the mishap, which took place on 28th September 2002, and four were seriously injured.
The first witness will be one who was injured during the accident and he will be present at the court on 28th April.
