Salman Khan case: Bombay HC orders fresh paper-book

Mumbai, Sep 7 (IANS) The Bombay High Court on Monday directed its registry to prepare a fresh paper-book — a compilation of documentary evidence in the 2002 accident case and conviction of Bollywood superstar Salman Khan — by Friday as it was not made properly as per rules.

At a hearing before Justice A.R. Joshi, Salman’s counsel Amit Desai said certain documents, which were not required, have been included and pointed out other discrepancies in the paper-book that was submitted on Monday.

This was the second time after August 26 that the high court directed the registry to file a fresh paper-book in the case in the actor’s appeal challenging his five-year sentence by a lower court.

The high court is hearing Salman’s appeal against the sessions court verdict of May 6 which found him guilty in the accident case in Bandra on September 28, 2002 in which one person was killed and four people were injured.

At the previous hearing, Justice Joshi had ruled that the paper-book must be prepared afresh in keeping with the high court manual and, if required, assistance could be taken from the judge who had conducted the trial.
