Bollywood actor Salman Khan on Friday recorded his statement in Mumbai court, in regards to the 2002 hit-and-run case, in which he has been charged with ramming his car into a shop killing one and injuring four others
The actor presented his statement under Section 313 of the Criminal Procedure Code in front of sessions judge D W Deshpande.
“I will ask you questions based on evidence adduced by the prosecution and you reply briefly about whether they are true or false, or you are aware or not aware about them,” the judge told the actor.
Khan was accompanied by his sisters Alvira and Arpita, along with his personal bodyguard.
In the heavy presence of lawyers, court staff and mediapersons, the police had maintained tight security at the court entrance, to prevent the actor’s fans from entering the premises. Most of them were standing all the time to hear the actor.
Khan had pleaded for a three-week adjournment of his deposition two days ago, saying that he had to go to Jodhpur court in connection with the black buck killing case, but the court rejected it, ruling that the 2002 hit-run-case case would get priority over the other case.
