Made to sit in the box meant for the accused, actor Salman Khan was seen dozing off during the prolonged hearing that lasted about two hours.
Dressed in a formal blue shirt and black trousers, Khan appeared before the sessions court in Fort with his team of lawyers, and sisters Arpita and Alvira. The actor was in court much before the court timings to avoid security issues.
The proceedings started at 11.30am. The actor, who initially sat in a seat reserved for litigants, was asked by the judge to sit in the dock towards the end of the court room when the hearing began. After some time, perhaps unable to comprehend the legalese, Khan fell asleep.
He was then joined by one of his sisters, who stood outside the accused box to give him company. Khan tried to gather the arguments made by the lawyers.
The police had restricted entry to the courtroom and had allowed only the litigants. When Khan emerged from the courtroom after the court reserved its order, women fans who had gathered outside in the corridor, created a minor commotion to catch a glimpse of the actor.
