The Bombay High Court on Wednesday adjourned hearing of Salman Khan’s appeal against his conviction in the 2002 hit-and-run case to July 13.
This is the second adjournment in the appeal hearing.
Senior counsel Amit Desai, representing the actor, sought more time from the court. The prosecution accused the defense of employing delaying tactics.
“This is nothing but killing time,” public prosecutor Sandeep Shinde told Justice A.R. Joshi.
The defense said they received the paper book of the case on Tuesday evening and needed time to verify all the documents were in place. They also sought time to prepare translations of Marathi documents.
The court, however, rejected the defense’s demand for three weeks time and kept the matter for July 13, keeping in mind “earlier directions of the court” to expedite the appeal hearing.
