A Mumbai sessions court will hear actor Salman Khan's plea against a lower court's order according to which he will be tried for culpable homicide not amounting to murder in the 2002 hit-and-run case.
Salman's Toyota Land Cruiser vehicle had rammed into a bakery in Bandra killing one and injuring four people who were sleeping on a pavement on September 28, 2002.
In his petition, Salman Khan has called the magistrate's order 'bad in law' and 'erroneous'.
Salman has always maintained that it was merely an accident and he did not have any intention to kill anyone.
The trial in the case began in 2005 and the prosecution has examined 11 witnesses. Two of the witnesses, including Salman's guard Ravindra Patil and Ramasray Pandey who had witnessed the accident, turned hostile. (With agency inputs)
