It seems like the 2002 hit and run case involving actor Salman Khan has taken another twist. In fact after being acquitted in the case by the High Court, we hear that the case might just be reopened in front of the apex court after the top brass of the Mumbai Police issued a circular to all police stations highlighting the lapses and discrepancies in the case.
Apparently, the circular issued by the additional Commissioner of Police (crime) KMM Prasanna, mentions 16 among the several procedural lapses of the police’s case, the High court highlighted in its judgment which include the mismanagement of evidence, apparent changes to the FIR without reason, lethargic response to collecting blood samples for evidence and their subsequent processing and a host of others.
Further we also hear that while the state announced that it would be challenging Salman’s acquittal in the apex court, the Bandra police are in the process of drafting an appeal for the same.
