Superstar Salman Khan`s bad boy image has caused a neverending trouble to the dashing star. Today re-trial of actor`s most infamous 2002 hit-and-run case is likely to be heard by the sessions court in Mumbai. Salman Khan is accused of allegedly driving a Toyoto Land-cruiser in a drunken state and running over people sleeping on the footpath outside a bakery in suburban Bandra on September 28, 2002, killing one and injuring four others.
As per sources, The case was deferred by the court earlier this month till April 28th, 2014 as the prosecution sought time to produce witnesses in view of police deployment on election duty. Sessions Judge D W Deshpande had asked the prosecution to produce on April 28 the first witness who was injured in the mishap in which the actor was involved, followed by eye witnesses in May.
On March 26, three witnesses failed to turn up as they were either not available or untraceable making this the second occasion when the fresh trial has not begun in the case.
If charged the actor faces ten years imprisonment.
