now Salman Khan to go to jail for 10 yrs

Mumbai, June 24: Bollywood superstar Salman Khan must be tense today Monday, June 24 as a session court in Mumbai is likely to deliver its verdict on the actors plea in connection with Hit and Run case.

The actor may follow his Bollywood colleague Sanjay Dutt to jail as it was reported that Salman Khan may face 10yearimprisonment if the court convicts the actor for culpable homicide not amounting to murder charge. Update: Salman Khan cornered, plea rejected; 10yrimprisonment likely

The actor had appealed against a magistrates order for his retrial in the 2002 hitandrun case under stringent charge of culpable homicide not amounting to murder.

Salman Khan was earlier tried by a magistrate under lesser charge of causing death by negligence Section 304A of IPC, that provides for a maximum punishment of two years in jail.

However, in a twist to the case, the metropolitan magistrate, after examining 17 witnesses, had brought forth the more serious charge of culpable homicide against the 47yearold actor and transferred it to a sessions court for retrial.

Advancing his argument against invoking the grave charge of culpable homicide not amounting to murder under section 304 part II IPC, Salmans lawyer Ashok Mundargi had pleaded that the magistrates order was erroneous, bad in law and contrary to evidence on record.

The magistrate, he contended, had failed to appreciate that Salman Khan had neither the intention to kill people nor the knowledge that his rash and negligent driving would kill a person and cause injury to four others.

Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt lately was sent to Punes Yerwada Jail as he was convicted in arms act in connection with Bombay blasts 1993 case. Of the total term of five years, Dutt has already served 18 months in jail two decades ago and the Supreme Court, in its order of March 21, asked him to serve another 42 months..
