A day after the Bombay High Court acquitted Salman Khan in the 2002 hit-and-run case, the Bollywood superstar today withdrew his plea from the Supreme Court seeking examination of his friend and singer Kamaal Khan as a court witness in the case.

A bench headed by Justice Madan B Lokur allowed Salman’s lawyer to withdraw his appeal after she said that it had become infructuous in the light of Bombay High Court judgement in the main case.

The Bombay High Court had on November 30 dismissed Salman’s plea.

The high court yesterday acquitted Salman in the case, quashing the trial court order convicting and sentencing him for five years.

It held that the prosecution had failed to prove “beyond reasonable doubt” that the actor was driving the vehicle at the time of the accident and was drunk.

    Who was the culprit driving the car so negligently that resulted into death of so many poor who has very little legal right even our Consution gaurantees it.Out legal system is such that heavyweights get through it while lighter insects get caugh is after all a Capitalistic system surving as ever on slave labour.Court is empowered by our Consution & law codes to do the justice - but does it reflect in the anlysis of 10 yrs covition record poor vs rich.Find out in Jails how many are poor vs rich.Does it mean that poor are naturally criminals?
