Salman’s car crash saga to end soon
Well, if you were hoping for a good end to Salman Khan’s infamous 2002 hit-and-run trial, you better start preparing yourself for some not-so-good news from now.
If you’re new to this story, Sallu was charged with killing one and injuring four other persons when his vehicle slammed into a bakery in the early hours of September 28, 2002.
On Monday, however, for the first time, the actor gave a statement saying that it was not him, but his driver Ashok Singh who was at the wheel at the time of the incident. Unsurprisingly, by the time Wednesday rolled around, #BollyTalks learned that claim was rejected since its introduction to the trial was too late. What’s more, all along it was stated that there were only three people in the car at the time—Salman, his friend Kamaal and his bodyguard Ravindra Patil. Where did this fourth person come from?
Mechanical trouble and a “burst tyre” was another claim that was rubbished this week, with the prosecutor saying that if that really happened, the actor would have known since it is a high-end vehicle (Land Cruiser Lexus), that would have alerted him beforehand. “The car is a fully automatic power-loaded one which will not take it away from the road in case of mechanical failure,” he went on to say.
Things weren’t concluded, but there was no verdict. Wow. Salman, things don’t look good.
The trial continues on April 6, when hopefully our beloved actor’s fate will be known.
