Salman Khan’s driver confesses to hit-and-run accident
In a dramatic twist in the ongoing retrial of Bollywood actor Salman Khan’s hit-and-run case, his driver Ashok Singh has confessed to being responsible for the accident, a lawyer said on Monday. “The driver Ashok Singh has been put up by the defence. He has told the court that he was driving the vehicle at the time of the accident,” public prosecutor Pradeep Gharat told.
Earlier, Salman Khan testified in the court and said that he was not driving the car and only his driver was. He appeared in court to testify in the hit-and-run-case, where the actor is accused of running over people sleeping on the pavement. The accident ended up killing one person and injuring four others on September 28, 2002. Salman Khan has been charged with culpable homicide not amounting to murder. He has also said to the court that he had not had alcohol on the day of accident.
