Bombay HC may discard prosecution witness Ravindra Patil’s evidence in the 2002 Salman Khan hit-and-run case

                     In a big relief for Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, the Bombay High Court is likely to discard the main prosecution witness Ravindra Patil’s evidence in the 2002 hit and run case. The accident that took place on September 28, 2002 allegedly left one pavement dweller dead and four others injured.Prosecution had claimed that Salman had allegedly consumed liquor at ‘Rain Bar and Restaurant’ in Vile Parle before ramming his Toyota Lexus car into a shop at suburban Bandra. Those killed and injured were sleeping outside the shop.

                         But the Bombay High Court observed that evidence of the injured is not devoid of discrepancies and the prosecution failed to prove truthfulness of the witness who claimed Salman Khan was drunk. “The witness testified that Salman Khan was drunk which led him to falling down twice on accident spot before he fled. Prosecution star witness Ravindra Patil should not have lost sight of Salman’s alleged heavy drinking in his FIR on September 28, 2012 (the day of incident). The concept of alcohol comes up in investigation only on October 1, 2012, according to the verdict.The actor had challenged his conviction and five-year jail term awarded by a Mumbai sessions court in May 2015 in the September 28, 2002 accident. High Court judge AR Joshi heard the case and finally acquitted him.
