Salman Khan Court Case Delayed

Salman Khan hit-and-run case delayed

Sept. 5 is new date for hearing on fatal hit-and-run case

Bollywood star Salman Khan’s trial on a decade-old fatal hit-and-run case was postponed until Sept.  5 by a court in Mumbai. The delay was caused by a new judge, D.W. Deshpande, taking over the case from U.B. Hejib. Reports say that another prosecutor is likely to be appointed as well.

Although Khan was excused from appearing at all court sessions, and was not in court Monday, the pending case has put a crimp on some of his filming plans. A U.K. visa for filming “Kick” in Glasgow was initially denied before he received it on the second application. Khan also dropped out of a concert in Chicago.

The charges stem from a Sept. 28, 2002, incident in which he’s accused of running over five homeless men sleeping on a sidewalk in suburban Bandra, killing one and injuring the others. The case languished in the courts but last month he was charged with culpable homicide and if convicted could face 10 years in prison.

Besides “Kick,” which is in production, Khan is gearing up to host the next season of “Bigg Boss” for Colors TV. He also has feature films “Mental” and “No Entry Mein Entry” on his schedule.
