Based the news appeared in the Zee News online portal “the Bombay High Court today suspended the five-year sentence awarded to him in the 2002 hit-and-run case, admitted his appeal against conviction and granted him bail.” The high court admitted the appeal filed by the 49-year old actor saying it will expedite the hearing on the matter giving the date on June 15.  “The normal rule is that when an appeal is admitted and the sentence is under seven years, it is suspended. Why prosecution wants to depart from this norm?” the court said. “This is not a case where I should keep him (Khan) in jail till his appeal is heard and decided. Why his right should suffer when his appeal is admitted and kept pending? In many cases people have suffered and spent their entire prison term only to be acquitted later by the High Court,” observed Justice Thipsay.

Justice Thipsay is aware of the fact that Khan has been on    bail throughout the trial period despite of serious charges of culpable homicide not amounting to murder “There are a number of arguable points raised about whether or not Khan was driving the car. It is also nobody’s case that Khan will abscond if he released on bail, pending appeal,” he said. While issuing the bail Justice Thipsay directed Salman to take the permission of court before leaving abroad.
