Salman Khan’s ongoing hit-and-run court drama continues with latest updates confirming the trial will be heard in court on 21st January. This comes after prosecution sought time to file an appeal in the Bombay High Court against its order for a fresh trial.
NDTV reports that prosecutor J V Kendralkar informed the court that the prosecution had written a letter to Law and Judiciary Ministry of the state government seeking permission to file an appeal.
Judge D W Deshpande then adjourned the case to January 21 and asked the prosecution to seek instructions from the state on filing the appeal in the High Court.
The court, on December 5, had ordered a fresh trial on the ground that witnesses had not been examined in the context of aggravated charge of culpable homicide which was invoked against the actor midway through the proceedings.
Incidentally, Khan’s next film ‘Jai Ho’ releases later the same week of his trial.
