NEW DELHI -- The Supreme Court has agreed to hear a petition challenging the bail given to actor Salman Khan till July 20 in the 2002 hit-and-run case. The Bombay High Court had earlier adjourned the hearing on July 13.
Khan, who got a respite in the hit-and- run case after the Bombay High Court stayed his five-year conviction, was earlier directed to submit Rs. 2 lakhs as security before leaving the country for a show.
A criminal court had earlier convicted Khan of culpable homicide on charges that he lost control of his car when driving under the influence of alcohol in 2002 and rammed into a group of people sleeping on a pavement.
Khan denied being behind the wheel, contradicting the testimony of several witnesses. The actor's driver had in March said that he was driving the vehicle during the accident.
