Actor Salman Khan may have to face a court hearing on his birthday on Thursday, in the 2002 hit-and-run case. The hearing is in connection with an application accusing him of delaying the trial.

As per the prosecution’s case, one person was killed and four others sleeping on the steps of a bakery in Bandra were injured when Khan’s Toyota Land Cruiser allegedly rammed into the bakery on the night of September 28, 2002.

As the trial has been pending for 10 years, IPS officer turned lawyer YP Singh and his wife Abha Singh moved an application before the metropolitan court, Bandra, over the delay in the trial.

The court had, on receipt of the application, issued summons to Khan asking him to be present in court on Thursday.

Salman Khan“We have received the summons and will appear in court on Thursday. We will seek exemption for Khan’s appearance as his presence is not necessary and could create security issues,” said Dipesh Mehta, Khan’s advocate.

The metropolitan magistrate’s court at Bandra in 2005 had framed charges against Khan under sections 304 A of the IPC (rash and negligent driving), 279 (rash driving), 337 (causing minor injuries), 338 (causing major injuries) and 427 (negligence). The prosecution has so far examined 17 witnesses.

Might be in court on birthday, jokes Salman Khan
Actor Salman Khan, who gave Bollywood a blockbuster with Ek Tha Tiger this year and will hopefully repeat the success with the forthcoming release Dabangg 2, says he might be in court on his 47th birthday December 27 in a 2007 hit-and-run case. "On Dec 27, I am not doing anything. I am not very sure what I am doing that day. On my birthday, I myself might be in court," Salman said.

Salman, who has been summoned by a Jodhpur court to appear before it in February in connection with a 1998 poaching case, says he might have a date with the Mumbai court regarding the hit-and-run case. "I think they have asked me to come on Dec 27, but if the lawyers say I don't need to go, then I won't go and if the lawyers say, I have to then I will definitely go," he said. SALMAN SPEAK
