Hit-And-Run Case: Salman Khan breaks down, jailed for 5 years


Salman Khan was convicted in 2002 hit and run case and he was sentenced five years imprisonment. Dressed in white shirt and blue jeans, the Bollywood superstar breaks down on hearing the court’s verdict.

His two sisters, Arpita and Alvira who accompanied the actor also moved into tears. Soon after the verdict, Khan was taken into custody and he would be sent to Arthur Road Jail later in the day.

There has been an hour long argument over the quantum of sentence. Khan’s lawyer as well as the actor pleaded for lower jail term.

His lawyer said the actor had paid Rs 19 lakh as compensation to the victims and would do pay if ordered.
 
“We are not running away from responsibility,” the counsel said.
