Hit-and-run case: Salman’s lawyer closed evidence


A day after the dramatic twist in Salman Khan’s hit-and-run case, the actor’s defence lawyer moved an application in the court declaring it had concluded giving all the evidences. The defence lawyer had produced Salman Khan’s driver Ashok Singh as the key witness and he has admitted that he had done the crime.

The court refused the prosecution’s plea seeking time for a few days to prepare arguments. The prosecution was asked to conclude its final arguments by next week, after which the defence will begin its final arguments.

Ashok Singh in his statement said that he was driving the car on that ill-fated night. He says that he “felt bad that Salman had to go through all the trouble.” He even denied before the court that he was given money to make these statements. The driver further added, “I was driving when the tyre burst and the brake jammed. The car went over the steps. I saw that people were trapped beneath. I got out of the right side and Salman too got out of the right side as the left door was jammed.”

He then said that Salman helped him to lift up the Toyota Land Cruiser but they couldn’t move it. He says – “I then dialed 100 and went to the police station and narrated the accident. They told me the police had left for the spot. I was asked to wait. I told Salman I was suspecting foul play.”
