A sessions court on Tuesday rejected the prosecution plea asking actor Salman Khan to produce driving licence in the infamous hit-and-run case.
Special public prosecutor Pradeep Gharat argued that Khan did not possess a licence at the time of the accident. He obtained a driving licence in 2004, as per the record available with Regional Transport Office, the prosecution said.
Earlier, a Regional Transport Officer had deposed in the court saying that Khan did not possess a driving licence when his car met with an accident in 2002. Khan, however, has denied that he was driving the car at that time.
The 49-year-old actor is currently busy with Barjatya’s ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’. Kabir Khan’s ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ is currently in post-production stage for a mid-year release.
On September 28, 2002 the actor’s car had rammed into a bakery in suburban Bandra and ran over people sleeping on the pavement outside, killing one and injuring four.
