DSK advocates for Salman Khan over hit and run acquittal in SC


On 5 July, the Supreme Court had agreed to heed the petition filed by Maharashtra government, challenging the exoneration of the bollywood film star Salman Khan in a 2002 hit-and-run case.

A bench comprising Justices JS Khehar and Arun Mishra declined to fast-track the hearing in the case. Mr Khan’s lawyer, DSK Legal Partner Anand Desai said, "Khan had wanted the Supreme Court to hear the 2002 hit-and-run case against him on merit".

Mr Desai added, "The honourable Supreme Court had on the last date asked us whether Salman would consent to the Supreme Court hearing the case on merits. Today we informed the honourable Supreme Court that we had taken instructions from our client Salman Khan and the matter should be heard on merits." "Accordingly, leave is granted and the final hearing will take place in due course".
