Hours after Salman Khan was acquitted by the Bombay High Court in the 2002 hit-and-run case, the Bollywood superstar thanked his fans and family for their unconditional support. In a post on Twitter, Salman Khan said he ‘accepted the decision of the judiciary with humility’.

In a major relief for Salman Khan, the Bombay High Court set aside the five years jail term by sessions court and acquitted him of all the charges, holding that the prosecution had failed to prove he was driving the vehicle after having consumed alcohol.

Setting aside Salman Khan’s conviction, Justice A R Joshi said in the jam-packed courtroom, “The appeal is allowed. The trial court’s verdict is quashed and set aside… Salman is acquitted of all the charges.”

Salman’s driver Ashok Singh, in his deposition as a defence witness, had told the trial court that it was he who was at the wheel and not the actor. He also said that he had gone to the police after the mishap but his statement was not recorded.
