Mumbai court holds Salman Khan guilty in all charges in the 2002 hit-and-run case.

Salman Khan, who has now been convicted, may face a jail term of up to 10 years on charges of culpable homicide not amounting to murder.

“You were driving car, improbable that your driver was at wheel”, Mumbai judge tells Salman, ndtv reported.

Salman Khan is accused of losing control of his SUV and driving over the sleeping men, after a night of drinking rum and cocktails at an upmarket bar in Juhu on September 28, 2002. The prosecution has alleged that he then fled the scene.

According to reports, the quantum of punishment in the case will be announced tomorrow. He can face up to ten years of rigorous imprisonment. However, Khan can appeal to higher courts against this judgment. Reports suggest that the higher courts will not conduct fresh rounds of examination of the witnesses. They will go through the judgement given by the sessions court to decide.
