The sessions court deliberated whether it had the
jurisdiction to examine the matter. 'The matter is interlocutory in nature and therefore you should approach the Bombay High court as I don't have the jurisdiction to hear the same,' the judge observed before adjourning the hearing.
The court will now decide on the matter on Friday.
In his petition yesterday, the actor had said the lower court's order was 'bad in law' and 'erroneous'. Salman Khan has sought exemption from appearing in a Mumbai sessions court.
