Take 2: SC AGAIN refuses to hear plea cancelling Salman Khan bail

The Supreme Court today refused to entertain a petition seeking cancellation of bail of Bollywood star Salman Khan who was convicted and sentenced in a hit and run case.

A bench of Justice FMI Kalifulla and Justice Amitava Roy refused to entertain the plea saying the order of Bombay high court doesn’t require interference.

Khan was granted bail by the high court on the very day he was convicted and sentenced by the sessions court. The plea filed by Sushila Bai Himmat Rao Patil challenged the bail order.

The actor was on 6 May found guilty in the 28 September, 2002 hit and run case and sentenced to five years’ jail for various charges, including culpable homicide not amounting to murder. One person was killed and four injured when the actor’s car ran over them while they were sleeping on a pavement.

In August the Supreme Court had also dismissed a petition seeking cancellation of Khan’s bail.
