Mumbai: Bollwood actor Salman Khan’s 2002 hit-and-run case will come up for hearing in a Mumbai court on Tuesday. The court will hear the actor’s
lawyer and the prosecution on whether the trial should begin afresh or evidence prodced earlier by the magistrate should be considered.
The court will also announce its order on Salman’s plea to direct the media to correctly report the proceedings of the case. Earlier, on Salman’s plea for a direction to media to report true and fair proceedings of the hit-and-run case, the court had deferred its order till October 15 saying the Bombay High Court was seized of this matter.
The court had said that Salman had already moved the High Court by filing a defamation and civil suit against some media channels for allegedly not correctly reporting the proceedings of the case. One person was killed and four others were injured when the Land Cruiser, allegedly driven by Salman Khan, crushed a group of people sleeping on the pavement outside a bakery in suburban Bandra in the early hours on September 28, 2002.
