A local court of Mumbai has ruled out the plea of Salman Khan who earlier sought permission to sell his Toyota Land Cruiser in which he was earlier involved in hit-and-run case in 2002. In the hit and run accident, Salman had killed one while injuring four others who were on the pavement.
The court said that the car was a piece of evidence in the case and he could not sell it until the trial was over.
The application was filed by Salman in March in Bandra metropolitan stating that he does not need it any more.
Khan's Toyota Land Cruiser had crashed into a bakery in suburban Bandra killing one and injuring four others who were sleeping on a pavement on September 28, 2002.
The Bombay high court had held that Section 304 part II of the Indian Penal Code (culpable homicide not amounting to murder) was not applicable in the case after Salman Khan said that he had not intended to kill anyone and the actor be tried under 304 A of IPC (rash and negligent driving) and other relevant sections.
Later he was charged under sections 304 A of IPC (rash and negligent driving), 279 (rash driving), 337 (causing minor injuries), 338 (causing major injuries) and 427 (negligence).
