Mumbai: Actor Salman Khan was on Monday exempted from appearance in the 2002 hit-and-run case by a sessions court following request by his counsel Ashok Mundargi. Sessions judge UB Hejib adjourned the matter to May 8, 2013. On that day, the court would also hear the 47-year-old actor's appeal against the order of the magistrate invoking charge of 'culpable homicide not amounting to murder' (section 304 part II IPC) in the hit-and-run case.
The offence under this section attracts a 10-year jail term and is triable by a sessions court. Earlier, Khan was tried by a magistrate for lesser charge of causing death by negligence (Section 304A of IPC), that provides for a maximum punishment of two years in jail. The sessions court also asked Salman's lawyer to file written submissions on the appeal on May 8. On the same day, the actor's lawyer would also make oral arguments.
