Bollywood’s Salman Khan cleared over hit-and-run crash
An Indian court on Thursday cleared Bollywood superstar Salman Khan of killing a homeless man in a hit-and-run crash 13 years ago, acquitting him of all charges after he filed an appeal against his conviction.
“The appeal is allowed and the decision of the trial court is quashed and set aside. Salman Khan is acquitted of all charges,” judge Anil Ramchandra Joshi told the Bombay High Court.
Khan had been sentenced to five years in prison at the outcome of his trial in May.
