After more than 13 years, the Mumbai sessions court announced its judgement on Salman Khan's 2002 hit-and-run case on Wednesday.
The supertstar has been found guilty of killing one and injuring four others on the night of 28 September, 2002.
The judge, on Wednesday, dismissed the fact that the actor's driver was behind the wheel and instead declared that Salman was driving the car and was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the incident.
The sessions court at 1:10 pm. has sentenced the actor to 5 years jail term.
Following the shocking verdict, Bollywood celebrities took to twitter to extend their support to the much loved actor.
There is an enormous difference between being a criminal and being human. True justice is then served. Keep d faith @BeingSalmanKhan
