2002 road accident: Bailable arrest warrant against Salman Khan cancelled

After getting the bail granted by the Jodhpur Court in the Blackbuck poaching case from 1998, the Mumbai Session Court has cancelled the bailable warrant issued against him in the 2002 Hit and Run Case.

Hi Salman Khan's court cases in the month of April. Bailable warrant is issued if the person fails to file the surety. However, he had to furnish surety of Rs 25,000, after Maharashtra Government appealed against his acquittal.

Khan missed the previous two court dates and his lawyer therefore applied for the warrant's cancellation, pleading that the actor would fulfill any requirements of the case. The session court held Salman Khan guilty in the case. However, it seems the Mumbai sessions court has now cancelled this warrant. After verifying details of documents, the court accepted the replacement.

The warrant was kept in abeyance last week after Khan's lawyer Niranjan Mundargi informed the court that the process of obtaining solvency certificate required to give surety was in progress.

Salman is accused of allegedly running over a few people sleeping on the pavement, with his auto, in Bandra in 2002. One person was killed in the said incident and the actor was sentenced to five years imprisonment in jail by the trial court in the said case.

Back in December 2015, Salman was acquitted by the High Court, of all criminal charges in the 2002 hit and run case, due to lack of substantial evidence.
