Mumbai: Salman Khan’s infamous hit and run case was scheduled to be in courts today. A Mumbai sessions court has agreed to Salman Khan’s plea for the trial to begin afresh and to consider new evidence.
The film star had appealed to the court in November 2013 for the trial to be started anew owing to a more serious charge that was framed by the magistrate under the section 304, of culpable homicide not amounting to murder.
If proven guilty, Salman Khan may face imprisonment for up to ten years. Earlier the actor had only faced charges of negligent and rash driving for which the punishment is up to two years of jail term. Khan’s lawyer, Srikant Shivade had argued that the actor had not been given an opportunity to cross examine the witness and a more serious charge should be tried in a sessions court.
The sessions court, on Thursday decided to begin the trial afresh and to bring the evidence given by the witnesses anew. The trial is likely to begin on December 23.
In September 2002, Salman allegedly drove his land cruiser and crushed 5 people, killing one and injuring the others outside a pavement in Bandra.
God Bless Him<3 !!

New Delhi: Aamir Khan says his colleagues’ good work makes him happy, and lavished praise on his contemporary Salman Khan, describing him as “powerhouse of star power”.
At India Today Group’s Agenda Aaj Tak conclave Wednesday, Aamir was asked about the Khan rivalry between Salman, Shah Rukh Khan and himself.
He said: “I can answer for myself. I don’t have any negative thoughts about competition with anyone and I thank my ammi (mother) for it.”
“It’s not in my nature. I understand that there are people who think otherwise, but it’s not in me to look at another person’s work, and think, ‘How come he did so well? How will I do as well?’ I just don’t feel like this.”
“When I saw Sanju (Sanjay Dutt) in ‘Munnabhai M.B.B.S.‘ and ‘Lage Raho Munnabhai‘, I was so happy with his work, or even when I saw Ranbir (Kapoor) in ‘Barfi!‘,” he added.
The 48-year-old, who is awaiting the release of action adventure film “Dhoom 3” later this month, then went on to praise Salman’s magic.
“Salman is my friend. He is a bigger star than me. When I see him in ‘Dabangg’, I feel very happy. Salman doesn’t need to do anything. He is a powerhouse of star power.”
”Woh sirf belt hilaata hai, chashme theek karta hai, and see his magic. I have no competitive feeling,” said Aamir, who is known to be a meticulous method actor.
At the event, Aamir received a request to either perform a bit of tap dance that he has learnt for Dhoom 3 or to show his perfect body.
He did none.
Then pointing to the difference between himself and Salman, he quipped: “Salman would have done it both – tap dance and he would have shown his six-pack as well.”
“I am a shy kind of person,” he said.
