On December 3, 2015, the prosecution urged the Bombay High Court not to show any tolerance to Salman Khan for his participation in the 2002 hit-and-run case, for which he was convicted for in May this year.

Hindustantimes.com reports – the prosecution – while closing on their arguments, they urged that the Bollywood star to be sentenced the five-year imprisonment which he was given by a sessions court for running his car into a bakery shop in suburban Bandra, killing one man and injuring four others.

Public prosecutors, Sandeep Shinde and Purnima Kantharia argued Khan was drunk at the time of the accident and smelt of alcohol when he was brought into hospital for a medical check-up the next day.

They further dismissed the theory, Khan’s driver Ashok Singh, was driving the car at the time of the accident and had lost control of the vehicle after its tyre burst. It argued the tyre burst after the car had rammed into the bakery.

Depending on the testimony of the injured along with other circumstantial evidence, the prosecution argued Khan was behind the wheel at the time of the incident which took place on September 28, 2002.

This disputes the claim of the defence that there were three persons in the car and Khan was not driving the vehicle. The prosecution maintain that only Khan, his bodyguard and policeman Ravindra Patil, and the actor’s friend, singer Kamaal Khan were in the vehicle.

The trial court held on May 6, had the actor to be guilty of culpable homicide not amounting to murder, and is presently out on bail granted by the High Court.
