The resurrection of the ‘missing driver’ is the reason behind it…
Salman Khan‘s legal woes were getting sorted one of the other. Last year, he got a clean chit in the 2002 hit and run case which killed one and injured four and a few days back, he was acquitted of two Chinkara poaching cases by the Rajasthan High Court. It was also argued that the key witness, the driver of the vehicle used by the actor and his colleagues, Harish Dulani was missing. A day after Dulani resurfaced to give an interview to NDTV, Rajasthan Government has sprung into action. According to reports, it is contemplating challenging the actor’s acquittal in the Supreme Court.
In an interview with the news channel, Dulani asserted that it was Salman who killed the Chinkaras. “I stick to the statement I made before a magistrate 18 years ago. I am not an absconder. My father received threats, I got scared and left home. If I had police protection, I could have given a statement.” Rajasthan’s Home Minister Gulab Chand Kataria reacted to the comments by saying, “He has never approached us for protection but if he asks in writing we will provide security.” The state’s law minister Rajendra Rathore added here, “We will explore legal options and approach Supreme Court as well.”
After he got acquitted in 2002 hit and run case, Maharashtra Government had moved to Supreme Court challenging the Bombay High Court’s order. Now, Rajasthan Government will follow suit. As if it isn’t already been a long drawn battle, it seems it will get prolonged even further.
