On Saturday, The Mumbai Sessions Court canceled the bailable warrant against Salman Khan in the 2002 hit and run case. A bailable warrant was issued against the Dabangg actor in the first week of April since he had not provided a surety (a guarantor for good behavior) in the past two dates, as part of the procedure.

A report quoted “special public prosecutor Pradeep Gharat as informing that Salman Khan was supposed to appear before the court to provide surety as per the directions of the Supreme Court, which admitted the government’s appeal.”
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. This happened about seven months after the sessions court had held him guilty in the case.
For those who’re caught unaware, Bollywood actor Salman Khan was accused of running his car over those sleeping on the pavement back in 2002 in Bandra. 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.
