Mumbai court orders a fresh trial Salman Khan

DHAKA: A Mumbai court today ordered fresh trial in a 2002 hit-and-run case against Hindi film actor Salman Khan.

Salman had asked for a fresh trial after the charge against him was enhanced from "rash and negligent driving" to the more serious "culpable homicide not amounting to murder", which carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in jail.

The court on Thursday said all evidence and witnesses in the case will be re-examined. The trial is set to begin on December 23.

Khan had asked for a fresh trial after the charge against him was enhanced from "rash and negligent driving" to the more serious "culpable homicide not amounting to murder", which carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in jail, reports NDTV.

The court said all evidence and witnesses in the case will be re-examined. The trial is set to begin on December 23.

The 47-year-old actor had told the court that the evidence presented earlier before a magistrate should be discarded as he was now facing a more serious charge. The prosecution had argued against fresh trial, saying it was a "stalling tactic."

In September 2002, Salman Khan was allegedly driving a Toyota Land Cruiser that ran over a group of people sleeping on the pavement outside a bakery in suburban Bandra. One person was killed and four others were injured in the accident.
