Two more witnesses in the 2002 hit-and-run case, in which actor Salman Khan is facing trial, deposed before a city sessions court on Monday. After a retrial was ordered in the case in December last year, six prosecution witnesses have deposed in the case so far.
The witnesses include three of the four victims who sustained injuries in the accident. The actor appeared before the court presided by sessions judge DW Deshpande around 11.15am, accompanied by his family members.
Khan stood in the enclosure meant for the accused and as during the previous hearing, was seen struggling to keep his eyes open at several points.
Of the two witnesses the first to depose was Malay Baugh, one of the waiters at Rain bar at Juhu, where the actor went a few hours before the accident took place.
The waiter identified the actor as part of a group that had come to the bar on the interventing night of September 27 and September 28, 2002.
Balu Muthe, a police constable appointed as the security guard of Salman’s brother actor Sohail Khan and the second witness for the day, deposed next. He stated that he accompanied Sohail to the Rain bar around 10.30pm where Sohail was joined by Khan, and a few friends even as he and Ravindra Patil, Khan’s bodyguard waited outside the bar.
