Salman’s case put off as lawyer unwell, witness seeks security

The hit-and-run case involving actor Salman Khan did not commence on Monday as his lawyer could not come to court due to ill-health, but a key witness made an oral request for police protection which the judge said he would consider after a written submission is made. When the court resumed this morning, a lawyer from the defence team informed that Khan’s counsel Srikant Shivade was unwell and sought time. Accordingly, the court adjourned the trial till January 22.

Meanwhile, Dr Suhas Pawar, who had collected the blood sample of Khan, made an oral plea through special public prosecutor Pradeep Gharat for police protection. However, he did not assign any reason for seeking security.
