Saw Salman Khan Getting Out of Driver’s Side: 2002 Hit-&-Run Witness

Actor Salman Khan was so drunk that he fell down, then got up and ran away from where his car ran over a group of people in Mumbai in 2002, testified a survivor in court today. One person died and four were injured in the accident.

Mr Khan, 47, was present for the hearing in a Mumbai court today.

The witness, who was injured in the accident, said that he saw Mr Khan getting out from the driver’s side of the Toyota Land Cruiser; the actor’s lawyers have argued for nearly a decade that he was not at the wheel.

One of the witnesses who identified him in court has complained to the police that he received a threatening call two days ago. The court will take it up in the next hearing.

It was past 2 am when Mr Khan’s car drove onto a pavement in suburban Bandra and ran over a group of people sleeping on the road.

In December, a Mumbai court ordered a fresh trial for Mr Khan, who is accused now of culpable homicide in the hit-and-run case and faces upto 10 years in prison if convicted.

He originally faced lesser charges of rash and negligent driving.

In 1998, Mr Khan spent a few days in prison for killing blackbuck deer, an endangered species, in Rajasthan.

    While one witness said he saw the actor getting down from the front door on the right hand side, the other said he had seen Salman getting down from the driver’s seat. Another witness said the actor had got down from the vehicle but did not remember from which side he got down.

      Well that’s true but if a simple hit and run case involving a star is still going on after 12 years and if they are still trying to decide whether he was driving the SUV or not then there is something terribly wrong with our justice system.

      Ravindra Patil, the policeman who was in the car and who died in 2007 due to TB had already deposed saying Salman was driving the car and that he was drunk. Salman was found drunk by the chemical analyst who tested him. The victims who were injured in the incident had also deposed saying they had seen the actor getting down from the driver’s seat after the mishap. What more proof does one need?

      “The test report said 62 mg of alcohol was found from the blood sample of Salman which was in excess of the permissible limit.”

      “Salman, 44, had surrendered to police eight hours after the mishap at 2.45 a.m. His blood sample was obtained at 2 p.m.”

      “Patil had deposed earlier saying that Salman was on the wheel and he was drunk. He further said he had asked the actor not to drink that night as it may prove dangerous while driving but Salman did not pay heed to his advice.

      The victims who were injured in the incident had also deposed saying they had seen the actor getting down from the driver’s seat after the mishap.”

      IMO Salman should have just plead guilty to drunk driving and causing accidental death and serve time in jail.

    Let me put myself in Salman’s position. I used to get drunk a lot. Alright. If I took a wrong turn and ran over the people – was it intentional?? Did I intentionally meant to kill people??

    There are politicians who do killing intentionally. They should be punished hard.

    Ashok Singh had told media in 2002 that he was driving, but police were falsely accusing Salman and there was shiv sena involved too due to Vivek Oberoi and Aishwarya affair.

    But no body really took heed and the case became hit and rub when he was present there all the time trying to assist the injured there. An innocent man had to go through all this. Finally the truth is out, Salman should sue the Mumbai Police and Judiciary.

      What I know is police tried extract a good amount of money when they heard Salman name in this accident and when he refused to pay and that is why this whole case was built up.

      Salman was never driving and it was clear from the beginning and Salim his father had stated that early on. But media and everyone involved painted him black and made it a hit and run. but tell me which star can stay on the road without getting mobbed so ultimately he was told to leave the scene by his neighbors. Truth was eventually going to come out. I am happy for Salman and hope he comes out clean from all this mess.

      Please provide the news link from 2002 where Ashok Singh had told media that he was driving the SUV.

      Salman’s medical tests showed that he was drunk and he is claiming that the test was wrong and that he wasn’t drinking. He himself admitted that he was sitting in the driver’s seat at the bar waiting for Ashok Singh to come after the other driver left. To me that story sounds made up to account for witnesses who saw him in driver’s seat at the bar. Secondly he himself has said that he got out of the car from the driver’s side as his side door was jammed. That again sounds like a story created to account for witnesses who saw him get out of the car from the driver’s side.

      Salman wasn’t trying to assist the injured. He ran away from the scene of the accident. He himself admitted that he left the scene of the accident as his neighbor told him to get away from there as the mob may turn violent.

      The cop testified that he was not found at his home when they went to question him. He surrendered to police eight hours after the mishap. Now if he wasn’t drunk and he wasn’t even driving why did he wait 8 hrs to surrender to cops?

        My friend educated idiots like you will always find him at fault and declare him guilty come what may.
        The problem with close minded people is that their mouths are always opened. Why am I not surprised you are already pointing fingers?
        Salman has said many times he is pissed off with his court cases drama, he said himself if he is guilty then he’ll go by himself.

        here is few excerpts:

        ” “A tyre burst and the car was dragged to the left….I tried to turn the steering wheel but it was hard, then I tried to apply brakes but by then the car had climbed the steps of bakery.
        I was in a state of shock and Salman was sitting on the left side. He tried to open the door but it was jammed. He got down from my side, which was on the right,” said Singh, replying to questions asked by Khan’s lawyer Shrikant Shivade.”

          Secondly how can you be so sure he was driving? Was you there to witness the crime? Did you see him drive? Nope. 2nd. If salman was driving then with was his driver Ashok Singh doing? Sitting in the back Singing songs? Lol what is salman even paying him for? 3rd let’s say salman did pay his driver according to few. Then why did he take 13 years to pay him to confess? After suffering for so long and attending each hearing? He could have paid him to say it 13 years ago and it would have been over no? You guys just want to see him suffer that’s all ya’ll don’t care about justice even the victims family themselves have said they have nothing against salman at all they just want compensation and you can search this up for ur selves. Anyways you haters can keep barking what you want it’s not like it will change the courts verdict . Seriously I’m laughing at your comments keep burning!Truth always comes out and in this case it took over a decade but it did come out eventually.

          I am sure after all this ends Salman will have an explanation for all this because all the witness were bought and tried to blackmail Salman to extract money which he refused to give since he knew the truth all along.

          First of all easy on calling me names.

          Secondly since you said Ashok Singh already said everything to media back in 2002 please give links to his interview.

          “how can you be so sure he was driving?”

          Let me rephrase your own words back to you.

          How can you be sure he was not driving? “Was you there to witness the crime?” Did you see him not drive? Nope.

          “If salman was driving then with was his driver Ashok Singh doing? Sitting in the back Singing songs? Lol what is salman even paying him for?”

          I don’t remember ever reading anything about the driver Ashok Singh before. So if he was driving he would have been arrested from the spot. Was he not?

          “3rd let’s say salman did pay his driver according to few. Then why did he take 13 years to pay him to confess? After suffering for so long and attending each hearing? He could have paid him to say it 13 years ago and it would have been over no?”

          Now you are contradicting yourself. In a earlier comment you said Ashok Singh confessed to media back in 2002 but now you are saying “Then why did he take 13 years to pay him to confess?” So which is it?

          You mean to say Ashok Singh the driver kept quiet all these years for his crime and let his boss Salman go through all the court cases?

          “even the victims family themselves have said they have nothing against salman at all they just want compensation and you can search this up for ur selves.”

          If someone committed a crime then he should be punished. If the victims want compensation and don’t care if the criminal is punished the criminal can’t be let go. All rich guys will easily buy victims and they actually do in many cases.

          “Anyways you haters can keep barking what you want it’s not like it will change the courts verdict .”

          I don’t have much faith in our justice system. The rich and powerful get away majority of the times.

    Here is clear proof that Salman Khan is lying.

    According to Salman Khan’s recent statements in court he was sitting on the left side next to the driver.

    “It is true I was sitting on driver’s seat in the car at the parking lot of J W Marriot hotel. But I was waiting for driver Ashok Singh and as soon as he arrived, I vacated the seat,” the actor said in response to deposition of a hotel staffer who had seen him occupying driver’s slot on that day.”

    “The actor, however, testified before the court today that he was sitting on the left side of the car but the door was jammed and hence he got down from the right side of the driver’s slot.”

    Link

    This is Salman Khan’s interview from Aap Ki Adalat from 2010. Here also he says that his driver Ashok was driving. But here he says he and Kamaal Khan were sitting behind the driver on the back seat. He says Ravindra Patil was sitting in the passenger seat next to the driver.

    So either he was lying back then or he is lying now. Watch it from 9:05.

    So basically Ashok Singh was involved and its not that he came out of the blue and took the blame.

    Anyway let law take its own course. Law is equal to all citizens of India and one should not blame Salman only. I trust Salman as a person more than anyone associated with this case.

    I did not know that Kamaal Khan had given a statement to the police on October 4, 2002, that Salman was driving the car. He probably will support Salman now but how can they decide a case by leaving a eye witness who was in the car.

    Salman Khan hit-and-run case: Summon singer Kamaal Khan as witness, demands lawyer

    In a fresh development in the 2002 hit-and-run case involving Bollywood actor Salman Khan, a lawyer today demanded that the court should summon the singer Kamaal Khan as a witness to shed light on who was driving the car at the time of the 2002 mishap.

    Kamaal Khan, Salman’s friend, was riding in the latter’s Toyota Land Cruiser when it rammed into a bakery in suburban Bandra on September 28, 2002, killing one person and injuring four others who were sleeping outside.

    Advocate Abha Singh, who represents Santosh Daundkar, an activist who has filed an application seeking action against the police for alleged perjury (presenting false evidence), made the demand in her 25-page written argument.

    Advocate Singh argued that Kamaal was a “star” witness, and had given a statement to the police on October 4, 2002, that Salman was driving the car while his bodyguard, police constable Ravindra Patil, was on his left, while Kamal himself was in the backseat.

    As Patil died during the trial, the only eye-witness left was Kamaal Khan and he should have been called to testify as to who was driving the car, she said.

    Salman’s case is that it was his family driver Ashok Singh who was driving the SUV.

    Advocate Singh also cited a Supreme Court judgement which says that `a star witness’ cannot be dropped. “A judge can call a witness at any stage of the trial if he is crucial,” she submitted.

    “You (prosecution) are deliberately not calling the star witness….that he is in England cannot be the reason. Under section 275 of Criminal Procedure Code, a witness can be asked to depose via audio or video conference,” Singh added.
    Salman had, in his statement before the court last month, said his driver Ashok Singh was behind the wheel. The next day Singh himself appeared — for the first time since the trial began — as a defence witness and told the court that he was driving the car and not the actor.
