The hearing in Bollywood actor Salman Khan's 2002 hit-and-run case will take place on 15 September in Mumbai. The hearing date was adjourned on Friday (11 September) after the Bombay High Court received a revised paper-book from the sessions court.
The fresh paper-book is a compilation of the documentary evidences, lower court orders and verdict, and other papers related to the 2002 hit-and-run case. Justice A R Joshi announced Tuesday's date for hearing after Salman's lawyer Amit Desai sought time to go through the fresh paper-book.
Justice Joshi is currently hearing Salman's appeal against the 6 May sessions court verdict.
On 6 May, Additional Sessions Judge D.W. Deshpande convicted Salman in the 2002 hit-and-run case on charges of culpable homicide not amounting to murder and sentenced him to five-year jail term.
However, two days later the Bombay High Court suspended his jail term and asked Salman to surrender before sessions court to get a fresh bail bond.
In 2002, Salman's Land Rover crashed into a footpath near a laundry shop on Bandra's Hill Road area in Mumbai killing one and injuring four others.
