In 2002 hit-and-run case, RTO officer said at the time of incident, Khan did not have driving license and he procured license only in 2004.

Special public prosecutor Pradeep Gharat said, "The witness deposed in lieu of a charge framed against Khan under the Motor Vehicles Act for not possessing a licence. The witness' cross-examination will be conducted on Tuesday."

The witness had recorded his statement with the police. The witness told the court that he had given Khan's license status to the Bandra police. "As per the records, he was issued a licence on August 17, 2004. It is valid till 2015," the witness said. The accident happened in 2002.
